LIVE JAZZ BACK AT BEAVER! Prize-winning guitarist Nigel Price brings his exciting quartet to North Devon Jazz Club at The Beaver, Appledore on 5th October to perform a special gig after a long period of no live music at the venue. Influenced by guitarists Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass and John McLaughlin, Nigel has played on more than fifty albums, has picked up best UK Jazz Ensemble and Best UK Jazz Guitarist awards and appeared at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club more than five hundred times. Musically, Nigel’s blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility and mastery of chording continue to delight audiences and fellow musicians alike. To quote The Observer ‘Nigel Price is probably one of the most dynamic and gifted guitarists on the British jazz scene.’ At the gig Nigel will be joined by other top UK musicians: Ross Stanley on Hammond organ, Vasilis Xenopoulis on saxophone and Joel Barford on drums. The gig will start at 8.30 p.m. and will be limited to an audience of thirty people due to social distancing rules prevailing at the venue. Drinks and meals will be served at the tables and tables and meals should be booked in advance by phoning The Beaver on 01237 474822. A donation of at least £5 for the band is requested and will be added to meal and drinks bills.
