COURTNEY PINE: HOUSE OF LEGENDS
THURSDAY 18 SEPTEMBER 2014, 7.30PM

Fresh from sell out shows across the US and Canada and slots at Bestival, Love Supreme and London Jazz Festival in the UK, Courtney Pine, and his critically acclaimed House of Legends set, will be the first of two headliners at Lancaster Jazz Festival 2014.

Deeply steeped in the traditions of the Caribbean, this very personal project sees Courtney Pine on soprano saxophone exclusively, and brings together musicians from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe. Expect an exhilarating mix of Merengue, Ska, Mento and Calypso in the beautiful Rake Theatre of The Dukes.
