European Jazz Conference, Lisbon, presentation links

I have been talking at this year’s Europe Jazz Network conference about jazz research around festivals. I said I would put the links I mentioned to various publications and other outputs in one place; see below. If you would like a hard copy of From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury or 25 Years of London Jazz Festival, contact me and we will send you one. Do let me know what you think!

Punch House Band, Crude Apache summer tour photos


As the, well, house band for the community theatre show, At the Turning of the Tide, by Crude Apache, the Punch House Band are playing outdoors around the broads, riverways and waterways of Norfolk through July. I am doing some of the shows—great fun! Lovely audiences, terrific songs. And we also get to play a few numbers from the Punch House repertoire before the show starts. Here are some photos from the first shows I’ve one, at the Lion Inn, Thurne on Saturday, and the Whiffler Theatre in the Castle Gardens as part of the Lord Mayor’s Procession weekend events in Norwich in Sunday. I’m doing three more of the shows (weather … phew … permitting) next weekend, in some special locations: 

  • Thursday 12 July, Whitlingham Broad visitors’ centre
  • Friday 13, Heigham Park, Norwich
  • Saturday 14, Geldeston Locks Inn.

Al these shows are at 7.30, but do come earlier if you want to hear the band! The show continues for another weekend after that.
