Gigs & Workshops
No events to display.
Really need to get my compositions more easily available and accessible – I keep getting asked by people if they can use them, which is BRILLIANT!
So going to try to put aside some time to do it (ha ha!)
Anyway – most recently, the amazing classical singer Sarah Wallcook performed Bubbles and Burdens at a concert dinner in Sweden, BJYJE (BlueJam Youth Jazz Ensemble) is going to perform a Fascinating Days/Mountains merge and KSGS will feature Muevete at their festival!
Really pleased to be able to continue with these workshops due to popular demand – jazz and laughter – a great combination.
And also great to be able to export the session to Penrith for our women players over here – hope we will get cross-pollination soon. First Penrith session is June 16th. See bluejamarts.org for details.
Looking forward to playing 3rd year running on the Coach House stage – we are on Sunday afternoon if you want to catch us! Gail – vocals and bass; Jilly – vocals and piano.
I have been writing a carol every year for the school my children went to since about 2003. I think this is the year we should get them all into a book!

I’m delighted to be asked by Jazz Coop Newcastle to run a series of workshops for emerging women jazz players at their base, the Globe pub. First 4 Saturday afternoons in January with an evening party on the 27th. Go to http://jazz.coop/women-play-jazz-workshops/ for details and booking.
BlueJam was awarded a diploma along with three Music Hubs from around the UK last week. Jilly shown here receiving it!
This is a real boost for the work being done by all the organisations promoting youth jazz in Cumbria and for the Music Hub’s commitment to a viable and innovative jazz development programme.
Congratulations to everyone!
