Duo Workshop: Zoë Gilby & Andy Champion  -  Sat Jun 22, 2019  |  03:00 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
In a new departure for Jazz North East, we are collaborating with Sage Gateshead to stage a series of workshops hosted by established North East duos. Each will draw on the particular experience and expertise of the duo to focus on different areas of jazz and improvisation, and share this with participating students.

For the final workshop in the current series the guest mentors will be vocalist Zoë Gilby and bassist Andy Champion, whose utterly distinctive performances of a wonderfully eclectic repertoire (from standards to pop songs via their own original compositions) are increasingly in demand at jazz clubs and festivals throughout the UK and Europe. In this group workshop Zoe and Andy will focus on listening, voicing, sounding and creating. The duo will work with the elements of improvised singing with the double bass focussing on melody, harmony, vocal percussion and lyrical composition; lessons which would be equally applicable to other instrumental combinations of voice and accompaniment.

All instrumentalists and vocalists aged 14+ are welcome to the workshops, with concessionary registration rates available for 14-18 year olds and other groups. Participants are asked to bring their own instruments, although piano, drum kit and amps can be made available at the venue - it would help if participants let Jazz North East know in advance of any particular requirements by emailing
