Jazz Breakfast With Mike Hatchard
Traditionally it’s a Mike Hatchard solo show the first Sunday in January, but this year it’s a duo – Mike is joined by the legendary Derek Nash. Derek is a top UK saxophonist; leader of the award-winning Sax Appeal, co-leader of funk/groove band Protect The Beat, featured member of the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and a producer and engineer at Clowns Pocket Recording Studio we’re very glad to find him available to entertain us at the Ropetackle.
He’s been nominated, not for the first time, in the Alto Saxophone category of the current British Jazz Awards. Derek has a personality to match his musical prowess and you can be pretty sure this fiery duo will kickstart the New Year for you with plenty of humour as well as some serious musical originality.
Pastries and cakes will be available to purchase.
