Jazz on the Concoure  -  Sun Apr 08, 2018  |  01:00 pm
We're delighted that, for the third consecutive year, we've been invited to provide the bands for the Sunday afternoon Concourse sessions at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival. An invitation that we accepted without hesitation, as it again gives us a chance to demonstrate the diverse strands that are interwoven into our regular concert programme, drawing on the finest local talent and great musicians from further afield.
1.00 - 1.40pm : Ushaw Ensemble
With violin and Northumbrian Pipes in the mix, Paul Edis’ genre-busting septet blends elements of folk and contemporary classical music with the improvisational freedoms of jazz, creating a distinctive and intriguing sound.
This performance by the Ushaw Ensemble is supported by Jazz North
2.00 - 2.30pm : Hand to Mouth
Vocalist Lindsay Hannon and guitarist Bradley Johnston revisit some great duos from post-war jazz history, particularly the classic recordings of Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass.
3.00 - 3.40pm : Fergus McCreadie Trio
A great example of the vitality of the young Scottish scene, pianist Fergus McCreadie leads his trio in a programme of original compositions that seamlessly draw on contemporary jazz and the traditional music of his homeland.
4.00 - 4.30pm : Mark Williams & John Pope
Guitarist Mark Williams and bassist John Pope are two of the North East’s finest and most versatile jazz musicians, working together in several outstanding bands. But it’s when working as a duo that they are most free to strike musical sparks off each other, and this set gives them the chance to do just that.
5.00 - 5.40pm : Atlas
Pianist Rebecca Nash and her outstanding quartet deliver original music - progressive yet accessible - that brings together elements of acoustic jazz with electronics, textural soundscapes, free improvisation and driving grooves, all at the service of strong melodies.
