Jazz et Vin! at Ann et Vin Newark, 18-19th May 2013


Jazz et Vin! returns to Newark in May 2013 with a programme of live jazz over the weekend of May 18th and 19th. It will be held for the seventh year running at Ann et Vin wine shop on Castlegate, Newark.

The event — a mix of ticketed and free-to-enter gigs — offers something to suit a wide variety of musical tastes. Tickets can be bought for individual events, or a weekend pass, priced at just £30, will allow unlimited access to both days and all the musical events.

Ann Hayes, founder of Ann et Vin, said: “The busy line-up is another heady blend of well-loved faces back by popular demand. This time they will play alongside a new name for Newark, but one well-known to jazz lovers and musicians alike, saxophonist Dave O’Higgins.

Dave is a regular at Ronnie Scott’s Club in London. He will be joined by the Nottingham-based Neil Hunter Trio, featuring Ian Beeston and John Porter, to play at Saturday afternoon’s relaxed free open access session on the wine shop’s famous garage stage.

To warm up the crowd on the Saturday evening, Peter and Richard’s Dixieland Duo will be playing and singing the melodic music of the 20′s, 30′s and 40′s. Later on Saturday evening, the charismatic TJ Johnson will again captivate the audience with his soulful, bluesy vocals and effortless piano-playing.

Ann said: “The Sunday promises further delights. Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis reclaims the afternoon slot for his trio to mesmerise and delight with their blend of guitar-based Hot Club swing and Grappelli-style jazz.

This is ahead of a welcome reprise from last year’s Jazz et Vin! revelation, Nicola Farnon.”

With her accomplished trio, this effervescent and glamorous vocalist and bassist will perform a set of favourites and originals to bring the weekend to a rousing finale on Sunday evening.

More details about Jazz et Vin! can be found on Ann et Vin’s website. Tickets are available from Ann et Vin at 23-25 Castlegate. Please call 01636 700900 to reserve yours now.

Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
