Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Exciting Line Up At Darlington Jazz Festival 2018

(Press release)
Darlington Jazz Festival makes its return for the seventh year this May and organisers are planning a variety of quality musical performances, which all come under the wide umbrella of jazz.

Since the festival started in 2012, it has gone from strength to strength, providing a platform for both local and regional talent, whilst still continuing to attract national artists prominent on today’s jazz scene. This year, the festival is expanding to more venues than ever before with acts performing at a number of different locations around the town. 
The headline event on Saturday, May 5 is an evening of swinging big band music from the 1950s to the present day, making a welcome return to The Central Hall at the Dolphin Centre.  This will feature Alan Barnes supported by the Durham Alumni Big BandAlan is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist.  He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.  The Durham Alumni Big Band is composed of past and present members of the Durham County Youth Big Band. Former winners of the Great North Big Band Festival they are guaranteed to put on a show. 

Shaune Eland, Darlington Jazz Festival organiser, said:
‘The enjoyment of the festival has grown year on year for performers and audiences, and we hope that this year will be no different.’

A launch event is taking tonight, Sunday, March 11, at The Keys, Skinnergate, featuring Alter Ego and also giving an opportunity to pick information about Darlington Jazz Festival and buy tickets.
