Community News & Views | Barnham hosts jazz band

JAZZ from Scotland is heading to Barnham next week.

 

Duo Ian Millar, saxophone, and pianist Dominic Spencer, pictured above, will be performing one of jazz in village concerts at Barnham Community Hall.

 

They will be playing their accessible and melodic brand of jazz from 8pm on March 16. Interwoven with the tunes, will be tales of amusing stories about some of the pair’s touring experiences from the places they have played and visited.

 

Ian said: “We usually set the hall out in a cabaret style with low lighting and tea light candles on the tables to create an intimate concert setting.

 

“Our concerts are usually well attended and we have had some wonderful and memorable jazz evenings throughout the UK over the years.”

 

He and Dominic have been performing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions.

 

Their style of jazz concentrates on developing melodic ideas within the framework of the melody of a tune, while maintaining the concept and groove behind it.

 

Thousands of people have attended their shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and they have also performed at the Scottish capital’s jazz festival and the Glasgow Jazz Festival.

 

Tickets for their show in Barnham cost £10. They can be bought in advance at buytickets.at/bct. Accompanied under-16s are free.
