An evening of Jazz
Charlie Watkins – Clarinet and his band That's A Peculiar.
Winchelsea Arts chills to the sounds Jazz for the very first time. We are delighted to be able to programme this exceptional ensemble of Jazz musicians. The concert will be formed of two halves: the first will be a duo between clarinettist Charlie Watkins and pianist Jay Verma, and the second will be Charlie's band That's A Peculiar. The evening promises to be varied and exciting, as the musicians draw on a wealth of influences to make music that is refreshingly new and different, in addition to performing a range of Jazz standards. It will feature groove-based free Jazz performed by clarinet, trumpet, bass and drums.
