Jazzin the Ribble Valley

Partisans 20 November

Sue Bradley writes about Autumn Jazz in the Ribble Valley

Friday 4th September 2015 sees the welcome return of Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues monthly gigs to the Atrium Clitheroe, with the Simon Read Octet. Simon with be joined by two LCM tutors; Jamil Sheriff/Kevin Holbrough. Neil Yates will be standing in for Laura Jurd. Expect to hear lots of buoyant, rich horn arrangements.

Further gigs through Autumn 2015 include the Aviators Ball on Friday 2nd October- a unique project which includes Matt Owen on Bass, and Rioghnach Connelly on vocals.  A projected back-drop and elements of jazz/world/classical and folk music make for an intriguing evening

The Matt Holborn Quartet makes a much anticipated reappearance on Friday 6th November. Matt will be bringing his violin for an evening of gypsy-jazz with a modern Parisian twist.  Matt blew us away at the 2013 festival so this is a very welcome return.

A partnership with More Music has given Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues the chance to host the Partisans on 20th November : line-up: Phil Robson - guitar, Julian Siegal – Saxes, Thaddeus Kelly - bass and Gene Calderazzo – drums.

The season comes to an excellent Christmas Party finish with our old friends Jeremy Sassoon quartet on Friday 11th December.  Jeremy will be delving into jazz/blues/soul music in his own inimitable way. From Jimmy Witherspoon to Ray Charles to Paul Simon, a very entertaining and engaging way to end the year!

All the gigs are at the Atrium Cafe Bar, Castle Hill, Clitheroe BB7 1BA Tel: 01200 442630 Web: from 7:30pm, stage: 8:00pm to 10:30pm, tickets: £10 - Members £8, available on the door.

Meanwhile plans are underway for the 2016 Jazz Festival 2016 happening from 28th April to 2nd May – building on the excellent success of 2015.  If you want to be a part of it please get in touch via our contact pages,,
