Kettering Hall was tapping its toes to the music of the Cygnet Jazz Collective on Sunday 22nd July. Malcolm Martin and his crew gave us plenty of Trad jazz, some Latin, and a little singing-the-blues. Just over a hundred people enjoyed the show and some slipped on their dancin’shoes. What a warm way to spend a winter afternoon!
JAZZ IN JULY was an initiative of Pat Fripp with the first concert put on by CRAG in 2008. In recent years the Lions Club of Kingborough has taken on the ‘Lion’s Share’ of the organisation. They were ably assisted by local jazz enthusiast Val Brown and the group of ladies who provided a light supper to make this a most convivial occasion.
In addition to the usual wine bar, David and Liz Hunn offered superb gin and vodka from their local craft distillery.
As the delightful day came to a close many hands helped pack up the hall. Graham Sanders’ beautiful JAZZ IN JULY roadside signs were collected, ready for use again in twelve months.
See you there?
