Preview: Zoë Gilby Quartet @ The Black Bull, Blaydon - August 19

Tomorrow (Sunday) at the Black Bull, Blaydon sees the long-awaited return of Zoë Gilby. The nationally acclaimed vocalist was scheduled to appear at the Bridge Street venue in March but, due to heavy snowfall, the concert, in common with many other events at the time, was cancelled.
Now Gilby and her band are sure to make it to Blaydon without mishap. It's an eight o'clock start, two sets, original material, a selection of standards both vintage and contemporary, and musicianship of the highest order in keeping with Gilby's high profile. 
The Tyneside based vocalist will be joined by one of Ireland's finest exports - guitarist Mark Williams, bassist Andy 'Undefeated' Champion, and from the Tees Delta, drummer Richard Brown.  
On-street parking is available adjacent to the Black Bull and if you'll be travelling from Newcastle why not take the bus to and from Blaydon Bus Station? A matter of minutes from Eldon Square Bus Station (Percy St), the reliable return journey (no.12) departs at 10:55 arriving Clayton St West (Central Station) at 11:08 (Eldon Square 11:12) leaving time to make that onward connection, be it bus or Metro. 
Support your grassroots jazz club, it's a mere fiver on the door, arrive in good time to claim your seat and get to the bar then settle down to listen to the Zoë Gilby Quartet. 
Lance.
