Tonight! Finn at the Fox (Feb 18)

Hexham Jazz Club's first gig of the year features the Abbie Finn Trio. Drummer Abbie will be in the company of saxophonist Harry Keeble and bassist Paul Grainger playing two sets of modern jazz standards by the likes of Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter with, perhaps, one or two original numbers.  

Abbie studied at Leeds College of Music and Trinity Laban and is now based in Newcastle. Harry graduated from Leeds last year and is already a familiar face on the local scene having made a big impression sitting-in at numerous jam sessions around town Paul is known to all as the Main Man at the Jazz Cafe, old and new.      

Abbie is looking forward to a bumper year of engagements which includes one or two prestigious festival appearances. Be sure to catch Abbie and the boys tonight (Tuesday 18) at the Fox Inn, Hexham, 8:30 start. It's a free admission gig with donations very much appreciated. Arrive early to bag a seat!   
Russell.
