A Concert for Margaret Barnes : Afternoon Session  -  Sat Jul 20, 2019  |  01:00 pm
The jazz scene on Tyneside can surely have had no more committed a supporter than the late Margaret Barnes. This Jazz North East concert, spread over afternoon and evening sessions, is our way of saying “Thank you Margaret”, with all the proceeds going to her chosen charity, Marie Curie.

It’s usual with jazz promoters that one individual appears as the public face, but in reality it’s the work of a team that keeps the show on the road - and there can hardly have been a greater team player than Margaret. For well over 40 years she served on the Board of Jazz North East, providing continuity through countless changes in membership, and ever ready with her measured thoughts on the concert programme. Like any enthusiast Margaret had her own favourite musicians and styles but she always recognised that jazz has a glorious diversity, and gave unstinting support to gigs right across the spectrum. Generally sat at the ticket desk, hers was the welcoming smile that immediately assured musicians and audiences they were in for a good night.

1.30pm : Debra Milne & Steve Glendinning
2.20pm : Paul Edis with Graham Hardy
3.25pm : Hand to Mouth
4.15pm : Thomas Dixon Band

Tickets for each session cost £10.00, but there's a saving on all day tickets, which are priced at £12.00.
