Jazz duo back with Artsreach

GUITARIST John Etheridge and violinist Chris Garrick are coming to Dorset for a short tour with Artsreach, on Friday 12th November at Broadmayne village hall, Saturday 13th at Winterborne Stickland’s Pamela Hambro Hall and Sunday 14th at Drimpton village hall, all starting at 7.30pm.

Etheridge and Garrick have performed together for many years. Back with a new show, this world class duo provides a feast of interplay, improvisation and eclectic repertoire, with music ranging from Peter Gabriel to Richard Rogers via Dollar Brand and Alison Goldfrapp.

Using looping and other effects, the two musicians create exotic tapestries of sound, switching seamlessly to a pure acoustic, with rollicking renditions of Hot Club swing, evoking the spirit of Reinhardt and Grappelli.
