Fri 4 Nov John Etheridge with Chris Garrick
Fri 11 Nov Lilli Unwin Band


The versatile and ever-popular guitarist who has done it all, and is still doing it, teams up again with a partner who matches his wit, musicality and love of fun. Chris Garrick’s violin(s) owe a lot to the pathway trodden by Stephane Grappelli but stretch out to encompass so much more. The combination of his easy style with that of John Etheridge make for a wonderfully relaxed and entertaining evening of varied music.
"John Etheridge is one of our unsung national treasures – a man with staggering technical prowess but who understands that that prowess is nothing without the heart and soul which turns the notes into music" Birmingham Post
"Christian Garrick has revitalised jazz violin playing so that it has been rejuvenated for the 21st century. Whilst still able to play in the tradition established by Stephane Grappelli Christian has forged his own style which reflects his contemporary interests” The Telegraph
