Fret and Fiddle
Venue: Wade Street Church Hall
Saturday 07 March 2020: 8.00pm
Fret and Fiddle formed in 2001 as a duo as a tribute to Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. Since then they have enjoyed over a decade of success as a trio, winning awards such as Stafford Jazz Society’s “Band of the Year” and producing over four albums of material.
Prepare to be dazzled by Fret and Fiddle’s show which takes you through the swing music of the 1920s, blues, Americana, folk, gypsy and some foot-tapping fiddle tunes. They even throw in a few refreshingly individual songs by the likes of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, making certain that there is something in every show to delight everyone in every audience. They are a popular act, so get your tickets early for an evening of the finest jazz music. The group are violinist and vocalist Sally Minchin, Andy Bole on guitar, bouzouki, and banjo, pianist Rich Hughes, double bass player Simon Smith and drummer and percussionist Steve Street.
