30th October: Lunchtime Jazz – Kate Williams & Derek Scurll Jazz Quartet

We kick off a short season of jazz/folk lunchtime concerts with the Kate Williams & Derek Scurll Jazz Quartet, who’ll be bring us a blend of music from the Great American Songbook, and Latin jazz classics on voice and vibraphone.

Kate Williams studied classical singing at the Guildhall, and then ventured into work as a jazz vocalist alongside a successful teaching and therapy career. Derek Scurll studied music at Selwyn College,Cambridge and is now an in-demand orchestral percussionist and jazz drummer. His vibraphone playing is at the heart of this new project. Kate and Derek are joined by Fenland-based pianist Ivan Garford and Jose Canha on double bass.

As usual the café will be open from noon, serving a range of hot drinks and home-made quiche, cakes, scones etc. All profits from the café will go to The Green Backyard.

The concert will begin promptly at 1pm. Admission is free, but those who are able to afford it are asked to make a donation. The suggested amount is £5.
