Jazz in the Barn – UWE Bristol Big Band

Date: 21st April 2023
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Winterbourne Medieval Barn
Live Music

Join the national award-winning UWE Bristol Big Band for an evening of classic big band music.

Fresh from the band’s appearance at the 2023 finals of the National Concert Band Festival, this will be their first public performance back in their home city of Bristol.

In the last 12 months the band have entertained audiences with concerts at the Bristol Beacon, local residential homes, Student’s Union and the Royal Northern College of Music. They have been fortunate to work alongside and perform with Louis Dowdeswell, the London Gay Big Band and the fantastic Ronnie Scott’s All Stars.

The programme will be heavily focused on music from Count Basie’s epic album ‘The Atomic Basie’ with other well-known charts in the mix.

Band starts at 7.30pm.
