Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

‘Trad Jazz & Barbecue’ - Coach Trip to The Buck Inn, Thornton Watlass

Proprietors, Vicki & Tony Jowett, are celebrating their 5th Anniversary managing the Buck Inn, Thornton Watlass, with a splendid 'Jazz Barbecue Afternoon' and the Vieux Carré Jazzmen will perform in the beer garden at the rear of the pub.* 

The BBQ is a bargain £5 and will comprise Homemade Burgers in buns with fried onions and cheese (if wanted), Local Butcher's Sausages in bread rolls, salads and coleslaw - tickets will be sold at the bar to exchange for the BBQ - sandwiches and simple lunches such as Fish 'n' Chips will also be available between 12.00—2.00pm. 
*weather permitting - alternatively, we'll be in the function room.

Join the VIEUX CARRÉ JAZZMEN on a day trip to the picturesque village of Thornton Watlass which lies north of Masham and south of Bedale on the eastern slopes of the Ure Valley at the entrance to Wensleydale and the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park. This is one of the loveliest villages in North Yorkshire, forming part of the Thornton Watlass Estate, with a fine old church dating back to the XI Century. The houses, built of local stone, are grouped around the large village green which is surrounded with chestnut and oak trees. Cricket is also played on the village green at the front of the Inn.
