Sat 16th - 'A Grimsby Fish Tale' - Jazz & Poetry - at 8pm

Fish Tales, a commission from Gill Wilde of Grimsby Jazz, is an amazing new work co-written by Alan Barnes and Pat McCarthy with poetry by Josie Moon. It toured the UK for the first time from July 2017. The music and poetry draws on the vibrant, dark and dangerous history of Grimsby's fishing trade. The commission explores the myths, the misadventures and the realities of the trawling life.

It is a tribute to the contribution made by those in the fishing industry who were instrumental in feeding the nation and protecting it in times of war; a powerful and exciting evening of jazz  and poetry completely evocative of any fishing port, and guaranteed to stir the memories of fishing communities.

Alan Barnes alto, baritone saxes, clarinet, flute, Gilad Atzmon soprano, alto saxes, bass clarinet, Dean Masser tenor sax, clarinet, Mark Nightingale trombone, Neil Yates trumpet, flugelhorn, Dave Green double bass, Pat McCarthy guitar, John Perry/Sebastiaan de Krom drums, and spoken word by Josie-Anne Moon.
