Making a welcome return to the Heron, this five-piece traditional jazz band features some top musicians in their style from Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire. Having used the Covid period to rehearse, when legal - they hope it shows and provide a raft of new tunes since they were last here; their trademark enthusiasm and surprisingly wide choice of material is a guarantee of a fun-filled evening.

Guitarists Nico Buri and Tom Dale met at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2019, where they are currently studying with world-renowned guitarist, Craig Ogden. Both skilled improvisers, they initially played together in a flamenco fusion project in February 2020, a project which gave them the opportunity to work with South African cellist, Abel Selacoe.

From this predominantly improvisatory setting, they have explored the duo repertoire for classical guitar with emphasis on Latin American compositions, notably those of Astor Piazzolla and Maximo Diego Pujol. Subsequently they have gained attention and acclaim for performances both within and outside the RNCM.

Now expanding their repertoire to cover a broad period and style of guitar music, Nico and Tom continue giving concerts alongside their ongoing undergraduate studies.

Following his two previously acclaimed performances at The Heron, singer/guitarist Keith James returns with these unique and timeless songs of vision, question and change, with words that reverberate with the tenacity of human spirit in these times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and civil unrest. Songs that have changed history and moved people to do what they never thought possible.

For a sneak preview, please take a look (and listen to) some of Keith's work:
