This Sunday – 16th December – Splinter@The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne

This Sunday is the last Splinter gig of this year. The XMAS JAM SESSION. Everyone one is welcome and there is NO DOOR CHARGE. The donations bucket will be available if want to contribute to Splinter. Hosting the jam session is Lindsay Hannon. James Harrison is on piano, John Pope on bass and Mark Robertson on drums. It will be a great night! Don’t forget to have (if there are any left) the “black pudding infused scotch eggs” – yes, you read that correctly. And if you have any room left, the home made pork pies are incredible. No excuses – get yourself down, mingle and have a party. You’ll be in great company………..

Graeme Wilson Quartet – live@ The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne 9th Dec. 2012

The Music Of John Coltrane

I haven’t finished doing the video yet, but you can have a listen to the unedited soundfile. If you were not there, you can now hear what you missed.

If you put your headphones on, it is AWESOME (for a mic at the back of the room, that is).

Apologies for the delay making it public, I’ve spent most of the day listening to it…………….

Video of whole night to follow, with loads of photos.
