Joe Thompson's Family Jazz - March!

Date / Time:

11 Mar 18 16.00 - 17.00


Performing Group:

This informal session is all about the music. Bring your young ones along for a great introduction to live music, as Joe Thompson and his fellow musicians play you the best in jazz and show you how it’s done – just like they’ve done at The Ivy Club the night before!

Perfect for aspiring young musicians, or families who want some quality musical time together.  This really is some of the best jazz in town, and when you pair it with an espresso from our café, makes for the hippest family scene around. 

On 11 March we are joined by guitarist Mark Ridout.

Mark is an experienced guitarist having performed in many of the UK's major jazz venues and festivals with such names as Jimmy Smith, Babara Dennerlein, Tony Martin, Natalie Cole, Jane Monheit, Eddie Parker. He has appeared on albums for various jazz artists including Jacqui Hicks, Andrea Vicari, Stuart Curtis, Simon Thorpe's Improphonics and also pop and rock albums. Also as a session guitarist Marks playing is featured on some computer and wii game soundtracks.

He has performed on TV for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and with Alison Moyet on "The Lesley Garrett Show" and is regularly to be heard on the radio in the BBC Big Band.

Also returning to join Joe will be the brilliant Charlie Pyne on double bass. Charlie has played with artists such as Yazz Ahmed, Noel Langley, Nigel Hitchcock, Sophie Alloway, Tori Freestone, Alcyona Mick and Martin France. Since graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2009, specialising in jazz double bass, she has built a career on her solid groove, classic playing style and infectious cheerfulness.
