Music: Jazz Garden Party
So it’s sunny as I am typing this and I have opened two, count them, two whole windows! That’s practically summer behaviour isn’t it?
And what else goes hand in hand with practically summer? Picnics, live jazz and garden parties, that’s what.
I have all of these on offer for you this Sunday as The Barkston Gardens Committee & tlc Estate Agents Cordially invite you to the Annual Jazz Garden Party Sunday 18th May 12pm – 5pm. Bring your own picnic and have a glass or two of bubbles courtesy of tlc.
Not bad for practically a summer’s afternoon.
See you there!Barkston Gardens Earls Court Sunday 18th May 2-5pm
6 String Takeover at the Troubadour
Always doing their best to put forward an eclectic cross-section of the most talented musicians currently touring today, the hard-working folks at The Troubadour have also been busy rustling up some evenings that are far more focused. Lately the guitar has been the hero and this trend continues.
Fresh from the success of their CandyRat Records evening, where we saw some extraordinary fingerpicking power on display, we are now being offered the opportunity to witness some supreme 6 string sorcery with the likes of String Theory, Matt Stevens and John Hart lighting up the stage.
The evening, on Sunday 4th May, will be hosted by axe artiste, Chris Woods , who will also be putting on a very civilised ‘Guitar Tea and Biscuits’ workshop at 2pm before the performance begins at 7.30pm.
This is the first in a season of Guitar Sundays TBC by the venue. Booking is advisable.
Flamenco at the Troubadour
Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor he has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form.
Born in the Andalucian city of Córdoba, Paco Peña began learning guitar from his brother at the age of six and made his first professional appearance at the age of 12. In the late 1960s he left Spain for London, where his recitals of flamenco music captured the public imagination.
Venues for his solo performances have included the intimate Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and the monumental Royal Albert Hall in London, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Concertgebouw, in Amsterdam. He has shared the stage with fellow guitarists, singers and instrumental groups, bridging diverse musical genres, including classical, jazz, blues, country and Latin American.
And now he is celebrating the place of The Troubadour in London’s flamenco history on Sunday, February 23. It is a show not to be missed. Tickets need to be purchased in advance and are being sold for £10 via firstname.lastname@example.org
