Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Let us know whether the weather has affected your gig.

Well, the Beast From the East is here leaving a trail of cancelled gigs behind it. Yesterday we lost the Classic Swing session at the Ship in Monkseaton (thank you Alan Rudd for the update) and the Hexham Jazz Club gig at The Fox (thank you Hazel).
I see, from Facebook that tonight's Take it to the Bridge at The Globe has also fallen foul of the weather.
It would be appreciated if bands, organisers or fans who know of any cancelled gigs keep us informed. The last thing any of us want is folk trudging through the snow only to find an empty stage.
So please update me - lanceliddle@gmail.com.

Hello, everyone!
I'm probably stating the obvious, but today's session at the Crescent Club is cancelled.
Even at the coast pavements are hazardous with snow & ice.

Have a happy 'snowed-in' day!

On the off-chance that anyone was considering braving the weather tomorrow night, just a note that the Steve Andrews Quartet gig at Carlisle Jazz Club on Thursday March 1st, is cancelled due to arctic conditions! Personally, I blame it on the EU..............

Reluctantly we have decided to cancel the gig by Alan Glen Scheduled at The Globe tomorrow night due to the forecast of snow and ice. We will find another date for the Alan Glen Trio as soon as possible.
