Jazz Jam

JAZZ JAM - At Holmes Mill

Thursday 21 February 2019 From 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Venue: Holmes Mill, Greenacre Street, Clitheroe BB7 1EB | Web: www.holmesmill.co.uk | 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 trish.ferrarin@gmail.com - helpful but not essential! More info? Try contacting info@rvjazzandblues.co.uk

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.

Gin, Whisky & Jazz Festival Fundraiser

Help us raise funds to support the festival's free community events.


Unfortunately some of our major funders aren't able to be so generous this year. For instance, with worries over recruitment, Uclan have had to cut back. Sad, so instead we're going to have a great night with a gin and whisky tasting and uplifting party music provided by the Blufunk Syndicate. There's going to be lots of fun and an amazing raffle with really, really great prizes!

What a great way to celebrate our first full Brexit day or drown your sorrows and, at last, forget about all the mayhem we've been through!

Tickets are £20 and you'll see this going towards hiring sound systems, putting up stages and subsidising events and workshops for children and our community.

And if you feel you would like to do more... then please come and talk to us as in our 10th year we really do need your help.
