PEGGY DUKE AND BENNY
Village Hall, Sat Aug 26th
The Jazz Repertory Company returned to the Jazz weekend for a third year, and wowed a packed audience with their skill and virtuosity. On this occasion, they focussed on the classic songs by Peggy Lee, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, with the hugely talented singer and trumpeter, Georgia Jackson. It was no surprise to hear that she was to sing the following day at the Royal Albert Hall in one of this year’s jazz Proms. We hope they will return again soon!

THE DIXIELAND STOMPERS
A glorious summer day attracted a full audience to hear the Stompers give a lively performance of favourite Trad jazz songs. It was a perfect way to spend the summer afternoon, with many stopping on their way to and from the beaches to enjoy the music.
