The Globe is a community-owned, multi-genre music venue in Newcastle, and its live music programme has extended throughout 2020 lockdowns thanks to innovative live streams, three days a week, spanning Folk, Americana, Rock, Blues, Jazz and Classical music. The Sunday night Jazz sessions have been a particular success, and the December line up is the strongest yet, featuring a string of award winning, up and coming, jazz musicians from across the UK.
Fergus McCreadie, whose latest award is Best Instrumentalist at The Scottish Jazz awards 2020, brings his acclaimed trio to The Globe on December 6th, playing music from their eagerly awaited 2nd album ‘Cairn’, due for release in January 2021 on Edition records.
This is followed on Sunday 13th by the Francis Tulip Quintet. A recent graduate of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire jazz course, and recipient of the college jazz performance prize, Francis brings a stellar line up of Birmingham and London based musicians, in particular saxophonist Xhosa Cole, winner of Jazz FM 2020 Breakthrough Act of the Year and BBC Young Jazz Musician of The Year 2018.
And finally, on December 20th, the north east based singer Zoë Gilby, Parliamentary Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2019, brings her widely travelled quartet, a fitting finale to The Globe’s year of top quality gigs. No wonder jazz blogger ‘Bebop Spoken Here’ said “Sunday Night @ The Globe, whether on line, or on chair, is fast becoming a byword for Jazz in Newcastle and, maybe tomorrow, the world!” We’ll be back in January with more great gigs –live and live streamed – from The Globe.
