The Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield, in association with The Yorkshire Live Music Project, has launched a monthly season of free admission live jazz with major UK musicians.
Upcoming dates are
- Standard Deviation quartet on Thursday 20 February
- The Weave on Thursday 20 March.
- Sam Leak's Aquarium on Thursday 17 April.
- Juice 28 May
All events start at 6pm.
The Hepworth Gallery is now ranked 50th in the world by The Times, and just a few weeks ago, welcomed its one millionth visitor.
The Yorkshire Live Music Project was established in 2009, with an innovative and ambitious mission to widen the audience for live jazz.
YLMP Administrator Sandra Carlon said: “We were thrilled to be invited to contribute to the after hours series of events at The Hepworth. This means loads more really great jazz for loads more people – and it’s free. Our work is about introducing people to this fantastic genre. The Hepworth Wakefield is such a fabulous place to do just this.
“We hope people who come along to these events will be further tempted to try the terrific live jazz on offer at Norvol’s jazz clubs across the region”
The live jazz events are mostly held in The Hepworth’s café/bar with great wine, beer, hot drinks and food available. The gallery is open to 9pm Thursdays and hosts regular changing exhibitions of contemporary art.
