The Next 3 Weeks at Hedsor Jazz
OK, so for the first time in 13 years, apart from the Christmas break, we were NOT able to run a jazz Thursday at Hedsor!! A long standing (well I hope it will be!) arrangement for a wedding took our place last week! Did you miss us? What did you do? Were some of those CD’s used to fill the gap? Well, no need to worry this week, because we certainly plan to continue!!
Next Thursday 23rd July, we will have a session by our regular regulars, the Clive Burton Quintet.
Thursday 30th July we have a SPECIAL GUEST. Saxophonist Duncan Lamont Junior will be coming as a dep. for Mike Wills. In the past he has often brought his famous Dad along too. Duncan Lamont Senior. We can’t say that this will be the case on the 30th, but you never know!

August 6th! Well it’s time for me to celebrate another year of survival, and for my special guest night we have saxophonist Robert Goodhew coming to join the team. We may have other guests too, so make sure you get to Hedsor early for your usual seat. There may even be some nibbles for half time.
Our MAJOR musical fundraising event this year is the day of jazz at St Pirans School, Maidenhead. Hedsor Jazz Goes to School, September 26th. It is a complete day of jazz, with all the Hedsor Team and many of the guests we have seen over the last few years joining us for at least a portion of the day. Go NOW to http://www.stpirans.co.uk/ and book YOUR ticket.
I’m currently in Gloucestershire. Today I went round the roof of Dyram Park, a stately home near Bath now run by The National Trust. It is in the process of having all the slates removed from its roof, the woodwork renovated and the slates replaced. The National Trust has given every visitor the chance to see the work at first hand. A few photos below
