Light up with jazz

HOSPITALFIELD House in Arbroath is to host a jazz concert in contribution to the town’s Year of the Light celebrations, marking the bicentenary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse.

The gig will be held on Saturday, March 19 and will feature the Hospitalfield “Lighthouse All-Stars” who will recreate a style played at the Lighthouse Cafe in California in the 1950s and 60s.

The quintet will include pianist Paul Harrison, Colin Steele on trumpet, Martin Kershaw on drums and Euan Burton on bass.

Alan Steadman, who runs Jazz at Hospitalfield said: “I wanted to do something for the Year of the Light, so what better than to recreate this very popular genre of jazz”.

The concert is sponsored by Mackays of Arbroath with tickets priced £12 available from 01382 774648.
