In 1999 a group of like-minded Jazz enthusiasts came together to promote the best in live and local Jazz talent, at the Red Lion High Street Stone. The venue became so well-known that even the great jazz pianist Dave Brubeck requested a gig – until is was pointed out that it was a small venue and wouldn’t accommodate his Bechstein (or his enormous fee, for that matter!). After a gap of several years “Jazz in Stone” returns to its roots from 24th February at 8.30 pm, on a monthly basis. The first gig will feature world-class guitarist Paul Matthews and his band. Admission is free but a raffle will be held to defray expenses. If you enjoy the unique atmosphere of live Jazz in a pub environment please come along to support this new venture. Any enquiries to Andy on 07851 302860.
