Fri 15 March : “Clarinet Marmalade”

Following the success of last year’s performance, reeds player Trevor Whiting joins Mike Denham at the piano for an evening of duets.

Trevor is one of the finest clarinettists on the UK jazz scene and, not surprisingly, he is first choice for several London-based ensembles. However, Trevor lives in Dorset and describes Tincleton Gallery as one of his favourite venues. Expect to hear this reflected in his playing as he and Mike explore the repertoire from Sidney Bechet to Benny Goodman, with several stops between.

Different programme this year, same great music!

Sat 16 March : “Ragtime meets Boogie” – solos and duets

International blues and boogie woogie star Julian Phillips joins ragtime expert Mike Denham to explore these two remarkable, contrasting piano styles which emerged alongside one another in the early 20th Century. Julian has a great reputation for his wide and varied repertoire, playing in a truly authentic way. He appears at festivals around Europe and the USA alongside other top performers in the genre.

The combination has been very well-received at other venues, large and small:

“We absolutely loved the gig”
“I was seriously impressed by the quality of the performance”
“Those boys made that Steinway bounce!”
