St Ives Jazz Club Gigs

Edgar Macias - St Ives Jazz Club
Edgar Macias - St Ives Jazz Club


The club are staging two gigs during the festival - as usual on Tuesday nights at The Western.

Tuesday 14th September - Sarah Gillespie Quartet.
A major new singer songwriter, Sarah Gillespie is one of the most individual yet recognizable voices to emerge in some time’ ...... All About Jazz.
‘Gillespie’s fiery originals offer a contrasting combination of sweet folkish melodies and a lyrically witty, street-talking attitude, that transports Lou Reed and Dylan to multicultural London’ ...... Jazzwise Magazine.

Tuesday 21st September - Edgar Macias Quintet.
A five-piece band that combines different jazz styles and rhythms from funk to South American. Edgar is a fantastic Venezuelan pianist and a great exponent of Latin jazz.
‘Latin-based but firmly in modern jazz territory, with any one of the five liable to reel off dazzling solos, it's a truly great band that you'd be daft to miss’ ...... Stratford Jazz.

For both gigs doors open at 8.00 pm and music starts at 9.00 pm.
Tickets available from Easter - £TBA.
