Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Preview: A late night in Hexham (September 21)

(Preview by Russell)

This year's Hexham Abbey Festival of Music and Arts (September 19-22) includes a late night jazz concert in Queen's Hall Library. Late Night Jazz with Nikki Iles, Karen Sharp & Friends begins at 9:30pm on Saturday 21st. Pianist Iles and saxophonist Sharp share similarly impressive pedigrees having worked with many of the great names of British post-war jazz. Their 'friends' on this gig will be bassist Andrew Robb and drummer David Ingamells.

Guildhall graduate Robb (BBC Radio Scotland Young Jazz Musician of the Year 2009) has worked with a number of established names including Tim Garland and Tommy Smith and was heard recently in the region with Alan Benzie at the Jazz Co-op, Newcastle. Fellow Guildhall graduate Ingamells is a 'first call' category drummer including gigs with Tobie Carpenter, Kate Williams and local hero, Darlington's Matt Roberts. 

Tickets for the concert (£15) are available from Queen's Hall Arts Centre (tel: 01434 652477) and online at: www.queenshall.co.uk  

For those travelling from/to Tyneside there is a late night train from Hexham departing at 11:25 arriving Newcastle at five minutes past midnight.
