On Sunday 7 June the highly acclaimed Durham University Big Band will be blowing the roof off the Globe.
Then on Saturday 13 June Scottish saxophone star Brian Molley is playing one night in Tyneside before heading off to New York.
As well as these regional, national and international jazz attractions we are hosting our regular events: Folk Meets Jazz (4 June), Indigo Jazz Voices (11 June), and Am Jam (14 June).
Further ahead - Play Jazz Weekend 1-2 August A whole weekend of listening and playing in the company of others who want to learn and improve jazz skills. The weekend workshop has been developed following the success of our monthly Play Jazz! afternoon workshops held at Sage Gateshead. The weekend format will give participants the time and space to learn more and develop further. There’s also a great gig on the Saturday night and the opportunity to jam with professional musicians.
The tutors are James Birkett and Judith Thompson, two superb musicians and highly respected jazz educators. The workshop is suitable for all instruments and a range of abilities. You don’t need to have much experience of jazz, but you should be able to play scales (and chords if appropriate) with ease. Minimum age 16.
For much of the weekend the participants will be divided into two groups – beginner/intermediate and intermediate/advanced. You’ll be able to improvise and interact with other musicians in an informal supportive situation.
Plenty of good reasons to come to The Globe!
