Chris Walker will be playing in Dalwood with the Pedigree Jazz Band this weekend.
Chris Walker’s Pedigree Jazz Band will be playing at The Tuckers Arms, Dalwood, near Axminster at the weekend.
Chris Walker (clarinet) and his Pedigree Jazz Band will entertain the crowd at The Tuckers Jazz Club with a ‘Salute to Trad Jazz’ and Chris will no doubt be telling some musical stories, jokes and interesting facts about jazz too.
For more than 30 years, Chris Walker has presented a weekly jazz programme broadcast by radio stations all over the world.
However, he is also a very fine musician and was a founder member of the famous Real Ale and Thunder Band, who’s many TV appearances, including on the BBC’s ‘Songs of Praise’.
A while ago he decided to get back to his roots and recreate the hit tunes of the British “Trad Jazz” boom of the ’50s and ’60s.
To do this, he formed The Pedigree Jazz Band. In their show Salute to Trad Jazz, they play the most popular tunes of the era, such as ‘Midnight in Moscow’, ‘Petite Fleur’, ‘Green Leaves Of Summer’ and many others.
The band has proved to be a resounding success, with rave reviews and repeat bookings from nearly everywhere they perform.
Hence they now tour extensively
The launch of this venture was greatly helped with continuing sponsorship from Marston’s Brewery.
Chris Walker’s Pedigree Jazz Band will be performing in Dalwood on Saturday, October 20, at 8pm.
Tickets cost £10.
