ANDREW LOGAN MUSEUM AUTUMN JAZZ

WITH THE MIKE BLAKESLEY QUINTET

 

Mike Blakesley brings friends Chris Bolton (The Bolthole) on double bass and John Williams (composer) on baritone sax to the Andrew Logan Museum for an evening of jazz on Friday 20 November 2015.

 

This presentation is the second in trio of autumn/winter evenings presenting Jazz at the Berriew museum and will be an opportunity to hear post bebop swing and melodic jazz.

 

Blakesley's (the Dragon Band, ex-Gerry Brown Jazzmen) line-up of Drums, Double Bass, Baritone Sax/Recorder, Keys and Trombone are thrilled to announce the addition of baritone saxophonist and composer Williams - who has accompanied a wide range of artists including O.C. Smith, Gladys Knight, Brenda Lee, Keith Emerson and the Three Degrees – and double bassist Bolton, who with her late husband Tony Levin has played with US greats (Nat Adderley, Art Farmer, Rodney Red) and a wealth of British stars (Peter King, John Taylor, Don Weller, Art Theman).  Now based in Shropshire as a piano teacher, accompanist, composer and bassist, she recently launched ‘The Bolthole’ jazz club.

 

“We are thrilled and delighted to have such wonderful, eminent musicians playing at the museum” said Michael Davis, Chair of the Board, “what a way to continue our trio of jazz evenings”.

 

The Mike Blakesley Quintet will play shortly after doors open at 8pm.  Tickets are £15, including a light supper and can be bought from the museum, Andrew Logan website (www.andrewlogan.org), or in person at R H Bunners, Montgomery.

 

The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture opened in Berriew in 1991 and is the only museum in Europe dedicated to a living artist.  The museum is open 12 – 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout June, July, August and September and by arrangement.  Entry is only £3.00 (concs £1.50).  Family tickets available.
