Alan Barnes - Saxophones & Clarinet | Dave Newton - Piano | Adam King - Bass | Steve Brown - Drums
Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing together for over 40 years. These multi award-winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes.
Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.
David Newton has been voted best Jazz Pianist in the British Jazz awards for the thirteenth time and has been made a Fellow of Leeds College of Music.
Covid-19 and concerts
In line with the most up-to-date guidance Public Health for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, we:
- clean all surfaces that people touch regularly and keep hand sanitizer around the site
- ensure air flow remains good around the building (we have a highly efficient air extraction system in the concert hall)
- advise all ticket holders to take a lateral flow test before coming to an event at the Granary and insist that staff and visitors who are unwell do not attend the venue
- Face coverings are now mandatory in larger venues. Although we are a small venue, we feel it is sensible to ask audiences to wear face coverings when moving around the site and in the concert hall, unless you are exempt.
- Face coverings are not mandatory in areas which serve food or drink and therefore not applicable to the bar area. Our bar is very spacious and we have additional seating in the gallery walkway area.
- Whilst we are advising adults to wear face coverings, we do not expect young children to do so.
