Jazz Appreciation

The Jazz Appreciation group meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month in the dining room at The Sun Inn between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.

The members of this group have an interest in Jazz music and share their appreciation through listening to a wide range of music both new and old. Each month there is a theme to the session, such as ‘Big Band Sounds’, ‘Female Jazz Singers’ and ‘Instruments in Jazz’.

 New members are always welcome. We enjoy all aspects of Jazz (traditional, modern, etc.)  so if you have any favourite singers, male or female, on CD, please bring them along.

You do not need to be an expert to join this group, so why not come along and enjoy a sociable afternoon with us. For more information please contact the group co-ordinator.

The contact for the group is Anthony Green on 0115 9383135.
