The current season of weekly jazz concerts at the Royal British Legion at Llay in Wrexham comes to an end on Tuesday, December 2 when the annual Christmas Celebration Jam Session takes place.
Led by two Welsh rising stars of jazz, Jamie Brownfield and Liam Byrne on trumpet and tenor sax, the North Wales Jazz Christmas concert is always thoroughly enjoyable, and will be the last event until late January.
Jazz lovers can be assured of hearing great music from guest musicians and sitters-in, typically including sax, trumpet, guitar and vocals, accompanied by the keyboards, guitar, double bass and drums of the North Wales Jazz Quartet.
There will be free mince pies and crackers and a grand raffle on offer as well.
The music begins at 8.30pm and admission is £6.50, concessions £5.50, with a special rate of £3 for school children and sitters-in.
North Wales Jazz is currently planning an exciting programme of events for the New Year beginning with another keynote concert at Clwyd Theatr Cymru, which takes place on Tuesday, January 20, when one of the finest tenor saxophonists from the US, Scott Hamilton, will be making an appearance. Tickets are available from the box office and jazz lovers are advised to book early.
Another extremely varied programme of weekly concerts at the Royal British Legion is in store for the new year, when North Wales Jazz will be celebrating 25 years of staging events in the region, while another highlight on the jazz calendar will be the bi-annual North Wales International Jazz Guitar Weekend, to be held at Wrexham’s Glyndwr University in the spring.
