Two captivating, yet very different concerts are coming up in the next few days, not many miles apart, sharing one thing, they both feature live music. On Saturday 28th July at St Peter's Church Leire L17 5HD starting at 7.30 pm a charity concert entitled "A Summer Evening With Katie Marshall" this fabulous 17 yr/old award winning classical Soprano will be singing many well known classical and cross-over pieces that will surely delight her audience. She will be in the company of The Musical Village Choir who have been on tour with Russell Watson no less. The event is in aid Sponsor Stars.

Two days later in one of their regular gigs, the Tierra Buena Jazz Band, one of the country's longest established  jazz bands majoring in (but not exclusively) New Orleans style Traditional Jazz will be playing at the Ansty Club. Grove Road, Ansty CV7 9JD. This band has an extraordinary repertoire having been in existence since 1958. The of the current band members were in the original band. They have been playing together so long that they seem to have a telepathic sense of what the next man is going to do.  I doubt they play the same tune in the same way twice. I have been to several of these regular Monday evening and always end up being rejuvenated by the music they so clearly enjoy playing. Tickets £5 on the door, start at 8.00pm   


I will be at both of these events to make a really exquisite musical weekend.
