ALAN BARNES OCTET
Saturday 29 September, Evening Session, 10.30pm
This all star octet has been performing together for over 20 years and has recorded the ‘Sherlock Holmes Suite’, two sets of songs with
lyrics by Alan Plater, and ‘A Jazz Christmas Carol’.
There will be nothing from the suites at the festival however (nor any strange costumes). This performance will feature expanded versions of
other compositions by Alan and a new look at some well-known material, all skilfully arranged to give plenty of space to feature these superb soloists.
