The Other Side of Roly Veitch

As well as being the consumate jazz guitarist and coolest of cool vocalists, Roly also has a deep-rooted interest in the music and folklore of his native Tyneside. In the concert mentioned below he displays those roots in a new light giving the songs a complete makeover - updated harmonies, intimate, natural vocal style, some jazz influence. The Blaydon Aces (Roly and Jim Birkett) This concert will feature some well known ’Geordie’ tunes and some lesser known but lovely songs. The music of the Tyne is woven into the stones of Gateshead Heritage@St Mary’s and tonights concert is a must for all lovers of traditional Tyneside songs!! Where: Gateshead Heritage @ St Mary`s (The church next to The Sage) When:19:30 Thu Jul 16, 2009 Tickets: £3 from Central Library 0191 433 8420 - or on the door.
Sounds good.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
