 (Press release)

The second of the revived Lunchtime Jazz concerts at the Durham Gala is this Friday, 27 August, from 1.00 to 2.00pm. We're pleased to welcome back Zoë Gilby and her Quartet. Since featuring in the very first Lunchtime Jazz at the Gala some 7 years ago Zoë's star has continued to rise. In 2019 she received the Parliamentary Jazz Vocalist of the Year Award, since when she has released two (very different) albums.

At their 2019 Gala concert Zoë and Noel Dennis performed works from their their Aurora project, the album of which is now released. She will be playing songs from this album together one or two other surprises.

And she and Andy have not been inactive in the past 18 months of the pandemic, when live public performances were restricted. Together they performed 40 weekly live-streamed 'From the Living Room' gigs, rarely repeating a song. And together with Mark Williams (remotely) they developed a new project of more contemporary music entitled Living In Shadows, an album of which is also now available.

So welcome back to Live Music again.

Zoë Gilby (vocals); Andy Champion (bass);
Mark Williams (guitar); Richard Brown (drums)

Friday 27th August | 1.00pm
Gala Theatre, Millennium Place, Durham DH1 1WA.

Tickets £6.00 from the Box Office, 0191 266600 or http://www.galadurham.co.uk

The concert will be in the main theatre auditorium. Tickets will be for allocated socially distanced seats, and with a capacity of 125 there are plenty of seats available.

We hope to see you at the Gala on Friday
