Thurs 1st – Weds 28th: 606 Club London ListingsDownload listings here

 

 

Monday 26th: Jamie McCredie at 606 Club, London

Jamie is a versatile guitarist who is equally adept performing either jazz or rock with unnerving ease and it’s easy to see why he was won BBC Radio’s “guitarist of the year competition” at the age of 19. As one of the most vibrant younger players on the London scene he has collaborated with artists such as Roisin Murphy, Mica Paris, Ed Drewett and Kid Creole but is probably best known her at the Club for his regular appearances here as the guitarist for vocalist Purdy. Tonight Jamie has put together a special gig of “two halves”. Supported by three quite brilliant musicians, Jim Watson on piano, Nick Walsh on bass and Chris Draper on drums he will showcase the “jazzier” side of his extensive repertoire in the first set, and then he will be inviting his special guests,  Tim Smart-trombone, Jim Knight-sax and George Hogg-trumpet to join him on the stand for a seriously “groove” based second set. Jamie has gone from strength to strength as a musician, composer and bandleader and it is with great pleasure that we once again welcome him back to the Club.

Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th: March Manouche:  March Manouche is a UK Gypsy Jazz festival that takes place in Menai Bridge, Anglesey, North Wales. Initially focussing on only UK acts, the festival is now growing to welcome acts from all over the world. The festival takes place over a weekend in March, and includes concerts and workshops from some of the best players in Gypsy Jazz. With both scheduled jams in friendly local pubs and a jamming friendly campsite, you can play 24 hours a day!

The idea for March Manouche Festival came after the founders, Stewart, Neil, and Meg, visited Cloughtoberfest in Ireland in October 2014. Starting their own festival was briefly talked about in the car on the return journey. By the next day, somewhat to Neil and Meg’s surprise, Stewart had built a website, set up a festival PayPal and made a Facebook page.

March Manouche was born!

The first festival in 2015 was a resounding success, so an extra pair of hands was recruited, and Ali joined the team.

2017 saw the festival’s first international acts; Jorge Bravo from Chile and Dario Napoli from Italy.

In addition to the four organisers, March Manouche wouldn’t be able to happen without a fab team of regular helpers, including Paul Airey, Paul Kent and Ted Lawson, as well as all of the incredibly welcoming pubs and venues across Menai Bridge who let Gypsy Jazz descend upon them every March.

The next March Manouche festival is set to be bigger and better than ever, and the whole team can’t wait to welcome you back to Menai Bridge for a swinging weekend of toe-tapping Gypsy Jazz.
