Jazz in the Vil­lage comes to Tay­val­lich

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE & ENTERTAINMENT -

Tay­val­lich Vil­lage Hall will be­come a jazz club for the night on Fri­day June 15 when it hosts jazz duo Ian Mil­lar and Do­minic Spencer as part of a ‘Jazz in the Vil­lage’ se­ries of con­certs.

Ian on sax­o­phone and Do­minic on pi­ano play melodic im­pro­vi­sa­tions of jazz stan­dard and orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions. Their style of jazz con­cen­trates on de­vel­op­ing melodies within the frame­work of a tune, while main­tain­ing the con­cept and groove be­hind it.

The re­sult is an ac­ces­si­ble melodic style that al­lows them to ex­plore, im­pro­vise and de­velop ideas without los­ing the essence of each piece of mu­sic and to in­ter­act to­gether cre­atively.

Ian and Do­minic are based in Ed­in­burgh and have had enor­mous suc­cess over many years at the city’s Fringe Fes­ti­val and have reg­u­larly toured through­out the UK.

They have em­barked on many ru­ral tours un­der the ‘Jazz in the Vil­lage’ ban­ner, play­ing in hun­dreds of halls, of­ten bring­ing jazz for the first time to iso­lated com­mu­ni­ties, per­form­ing in in­ti­mate set­tings to ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ences.

The beau­ti­ful Scot­tish scenery they have seen on their trav­els has in­spired Ian to write many pieces of mu­sic. The duo is keen to en­cour­age the next gen­er­a­tion of jazz afi­ciona­dos so ad­mis­sion is free for un­der 16s if ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Ad­mis­sion is £10 at the door or email info.tayvhall@gmail.com. Bring your own bot­tle.
