Bellfarm Ln, Uckfield TN22 1AE
In a stunning finale to Festival week, the 17 musicians of the Tonbridge-based Jon Hamilton Big Band, together with vocalist Ruth Fahie, entertain with a programme featuring the music of Duke Ellington : pianist, band leader, composer…. and musical visionary. More so than any other band of the era, the Duke’s music was true jazz, orchestrated for the big band sound.
The band will be joined by the wonderful Ruth Fahie, singing numbers made famous by the great Ella Fitzgerald, in collaboration with Ellington and others. (In association with GP Music Promotions)
The Grand Uckfield Festival Draw will be made during the interval at about 8.30pm
