SCOTTISH duo Ian Millar and Dominic Spencer will be bringing their successful ‘Jazz in the Village’ concert to Wootton Fitzpaine, near Charmouth, next month.
Based in Edinburgh, the pair have toured the show up and down the UK and will be at Wootton Fitzpaine Village Hall on Friday, April 17 from 8pm.
Ian (saxophone) and Dominic (piano) have been performing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions.
Their style of jazz concentrates on developing melodic ideas within the framework of the melody of a tune, whilst maintaining the concept and groove behind it. The result is a very accessible melodic style which allows them to explore, improvise and develop ideas without losing the essence of each piece of music, and to interact together in as creative a way as possible.
The duo have had enormous success over many years during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their successful show ‘Jazz at Lunchtime’. Thousands of people have come to see them perform, with many sell-out shows.
They have also embarked on many rural tours under their ‘Jazz in the Village’ series, playing in hundreds of halls, often bringing jazz for the first time to remote communities, performing in intimate settings to appreciative audiences.
Tickets for the show in Wootton Fitzpaine cost £10 (accompanied under 16s free) and are available to book in advance by calling 01297 560948.
