Lunchtime Jazz @ the Lit & Phil.

This notice is just to let you know that unfortunately the Lunchtime Concert on January 19th listed in the programme of our last two concerts has been cancelled because of difficulties matching programming a band and confirming the date with the Lit & Phil.
However, we are all set to start the 2018 programme in February with the following two concerts:

February 16th: Mark Williams Trio (guitar-led trio), featuring music from the recently released CD "Last Bus to Bensham".
March 16th: James Harrison Trio (piano-led trio)


Further dates should be in place by February 18th.

Meanwhile, if you're missing lunchtime jazz and can travel there are Friday lunchtime concerts at the Gala in Durham on:

February 2nd: Lindsay Hannon Plus (again featuring music from a recently released second CD)
March 9th: Gerry Richardson Trio

Brian Ebbatson.
