Jazz Jam night

JAZZ JAM At Holmes Mill

Thursday 21 June 2018 From 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Venue: Holmes Mill, Greenacre Street, Clitheroe BB7 1EB | Web: | Tickets: FREE

Free Monthly Jazz Jam - 3rd Thursday Monthly - at Bowland Brewery/Holmes Mill, Clitheroe with resident band, Breaking Jazz, and Paul J Rigby Trio (alternately).

Jamming Session for any instrument - any experience - Stand in with the band, play your favourite tune, solo & improvise! Tell bandleader your tune/key via - helpful but not essential! More info? Try contacting

Guests and jammers who will be instrumentalists or singers, or both, will have the chance to play with an experienced backline, sharing in the delivery of tunes, and performing one or two solos. Age and levels of experience are no barrier to having a go in a jazz jam session, especially with an experienced band lead by jazz musician and tutor, Trish Ferrarin, and there is no need for potential jammers to book a spot, just turn up on the night with your instrument, and let the band know you are there. It's helpful to let Trish Ferrarin or Paul J Rigby know your tunes in advance, and the key played in.

Jam sessions will go ahead in the Holmes Mill Engine Room where accoustics are excellent, with standing room available alongside tables that can be reserved online or via a short phone call. These sessions are being managed and programmed by Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues. They are open to all who love live music. No only that, but Thursday evenings at Bowland Brewery are ‘new beer’ nights, presenting new ales brewed on site that are sure to be popular with members of CAMRA. Real ale buffs will also be able to join Bowland Beer Club, which entitles them to discount on ales not just at Bowland Brewery, but also at other places belonging to James Places.

MONTHLY CLUB GIG | Pannonica with Zoe Gilby

Friday 6 July 2018 From 5:00pm, Stage: 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Newcastle's leading jazz vocalist returns to Clitheroe. In this project Zoe focuses on the work of one of her heroines, Carmen McRae, and in particular McRae’s fascination with the music of Thelonius Monk – titles like ‘Blue Monk’ and indeed ‘Pannonica’ will be to the fore. An interesting way of celebrating the work of a seminal figure in jazz history – or even two.

Line-up:  Zoe Gilby (vocals), Paul Edis (keys), Andy Champion (dbl bass), Richard Brown (drums)
