Jazz in North Wales

As a continuation of my “Who says nothing is happening in North Wales” post, here’s a list of upcoming events over the next month. if you would like to be on my mailing list (for North Wales or generally!) please email me warrenhuw@gmail.com

Some more North Wales Jazz activity coming up!

Starting this Sunday with the next Seiat Jazz session in the bar at Galeri Caernarfon. This is turning into a really great  informal place to listen to quality music (as well as have lunch at the Doc Cafe, a drink at the bar or a general chill….) Best of all, its free!

The Seiat Jazz sessions are every 2 months and have been set up to showcase the talents of up and coming musicians in the area.
This weeks’s session will be a trio with Ben Tunnicliffe on bass and Zoot Warren drums

Sunday March 25th,  Seiat Jazz, Galeri, Caernarfon, Doc Fictoria, 1pm
