You will find above our advert for a return visit next Thursday, May 1st , by British sax legend Duncan Lamont.

Duncan is coming to play alongside our regular reedman Mike Wills for another special evening of quality jazz at The Hedsor Social Club. It starts at our usual start time of 8.30 pm, and admission is still a bankrupting £3. So why not come out and enjoy the music and the special atmosphere of Jazz at Hedsor.

I've been asked to mention another special event that involves local trad heroes, Cookhams fabulous Shirtlifters. "They are playing a number of local gigs around the Porthcurno area in Cornwall but the highlight should be the performance at the Minark Theatre on Sat 10 May evening weather permitting. It is an open-air amphitheatre on the edge of the cliffs - truly exceptional venue you will agree if you search/look on the net for 'Minark Theatre'. Normally they put on Shakespeare plays , Gilbert and Sullivan and the like as well as standard classical concerts by 30 / 40 piece orchestras. This is the first time hey have attempted jazz I think , so it's a bit of a try out you could say." For more details you could do worse than ringing the Shirtlifters titular head, Charles Benson on 01628 472163.

Do read last weeks nag again about other very forthcoming jazz events slightly nearer to home than Cornwall.

BUT, the place to hear jazz locally is still The Hedsor Social Club! Now a favourite riff for all who come on a regular basis
