Gig Preview: White Canvas at Ribble Valley Jazz, November 4th
The team at Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues club work hard all year round, hosting an annual festival, a year long season of club gigs and have recently started hosting a radio show! They've been in touch to tell us about their next gig at the club which takes place on November 4th and features the band White Canvas.
From the Ribble Valley Jazz website...
The band was formed in 2012 by pianist and composer Barry Dallman as an outlet for his original compositions. Having played and worked in jazz, blues, rock, soul, funk and folk bands throughout his career, Barry’s influences are eclectic and wide-ranging. His compositions blend the harmony and improvisation of jazz with catchy tunes and head-nodding grooves. As the author of the popular PlayJazz blog, Barry has often railed against the focus on complexity and technical facility found in some areas of modern jazz and his own music reflects a love of space, melody and dynamic contrast.
Personnel: Barry Dallman (piano), Andrew Hulme (guitar), Grant Russell (bass) and Adam Goldberg (drums).
Tickets cost £10 with a discounted price of £8 for members. Doors open at 7.30pm and there's music from 8pm. For more information on the great music Ribble Valley put on, visit their website.
