A new weekly jazz session in Dundee begins in the Caird restaurant and cocktail bar in the city’s Nethergate on Sunday September 12.
Running from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, the sessions open with the nationally popular, locally based Havana Swing who bring their high energy, swinging guitar music to the Caird’s Capone downstairs bar.
Future attractions include the trumpet and saxophone-led Sellars Bros band on September 19, East Coast Jazzmen on October 3 and singer Sheila Gaughan on October 10.
Guitarist Kevin Murray, who is programming the series, says the emphasis will be on music that swings in a variety of tempos and showcases musicianship and creativity.
The Caird occupies the imposing, free-standing mansion originally built as the family residence of William Brown, of J and W Brown, flax spinners, in 1840.
