Jazz Evening At The White Hart Hotel

Jazz Evening at the White Hart Hotel

Friday 7th June

Join us at the White Hart on Friday 7th June for an evening of jazz, featuring two-time winner of the BBC Jazz Musician of the Year, Alan Barnes.

Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.

His range and brilliance have made him a “first call” for studio and live work since his precocious arrival on the scene more than thirty years ago.

​His recorded catalogue is immense. He has made over thirty albums as leader and co-leader alone, and the list of his session and side-man work includes Bjork, Bryan Ferry, Michel LeGrande, Clare Teale, Westlife, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum. He has toured and played residencies with such diverse and demanding figures as Ruby Braff, Freddie Hubbard, Scott Hamilton, Warren Vache, Ken Peplowski, Harry Allen and Conte Candoli.

​In British jazz, the young Barnes was recognized – and hired – by the established greats of the time: Stan Tracy, John Dankworth, Kenny Baker, Bob Wilber, and Humphrey Lyttelton. But he is equally respected for his longstanding and fruitful collaborations with contemporaries such as David Newton, Bruce Adams, and Martin Taylor.

​Alan Barnes’s unique musicianship, indefatigable touring, and warm rapport with audiences have made him uniquely popular in British jazz. He has received over 25 British Jazz Awards, most recently in 2014 for clarinet, and has twice been made BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.

He will be joined on the night by Sam Jackson (bass), Frank Birkbeck (guitar) and Steve Hanley (drums).

The evening kicks off from 7pm in the Royal Courtyard with a bar available and a hot fork buffet available in King Richard II.

Tickets are £35pp including hot fork buffet and can be booked directly here with the hotel by calling 01522 526222 and asking for the events team or by emailing conference@whitehart-lincoln.co.uk
