Jazz in the sticks - Stanhope, Co. Durham. March 29

St Thomas Church Hall in Stanhope could be said to be in the ‘back of beyond’ but that didn’t deter Bebop Spoken Here’s intrepid explorer cum reporter Tony Eales from venturing into the unknown on Thursday evening. Rations packed, GPS switched on, Eales headed for St Thomas’ Church Hall in the Weardale village of Stanhope. Would TE be the only person to turn up to hear Alan Barnes and Dave Newton play some jazz? Come to think of it, would Barnes and Newton find the place? As TE popped his head around the door he was greeted by Barnesy: Hello Tony!

The ever-popular reeds and piano duo had made it, and they shouldn’t have been surprised to find BSH’s Eales in the congregation. Would it be a ‘jazz’ audience? TE didn’t recognise anyone as the audience turned up, it transpires they were locals and were looking forward to a first ever gig in the church hall. A good few dozen made the effort, and TE reports that at the end of the evening there was much applause for their guests, Messrs Barnes and Newton.

My friend Alan and I went up to the Alan Barnes/Dave Newton gig at Wingates – west of Morpeth last night (Friday). Other than a slight problem with limited car parking it was an excellent night
No mic for Alan (Barnes) so we missed parts of his jokes The usual varied programme. Nice to see Dereck Cogger and his wife among an audience of around 60. I should have taken some flyers for Wednesday at AJC
