8.00 pm

The Blue Room, The Lawn, Lincoln 

Steve Fishwick is widely considered to be one of the best jazz trumpet players ever to come from the UK. This assessment was recently endorsed when none other than the great Wynton Marsalis said about him ‘Steve plays from the bottom to the top of the horn whilst maintaining the integrity of the chords. I can’t think of another trumpet player who can do what he does’.

Steve has been part of numerous bands, such as The Dankworth Band, BBC Big Band, Stan Tracey Band, WDR Big Band whilst playing alongside a host of American musicians.

With him for this event will be  Alex Garnett, one of our favourite saxophonists, back to Lincoln in what promises to be a celebration of jazz in the Hard Bop style.

Climb that Tree!

Little Seeds Music

6.00 pm

Town Hall, Market Place, Kirton in Lindsey

David Gibb is on a one man mission to make brilliant, engaging and high quality music for families and children. Climb That Tree is the brand new show from award winning songwriter and musician David Gibb. Join David on a musical journey through his hilarious and often surreal imagination, where bears live in the cupboard under the stairs, wolves are roaming the corridors at school and trips to the moon are a regular occurrence.

This latest release builds on the success of his critically acclaimed debut album Letters Through Your Door, which had families across the UK singing (quite literally) its praises. David’s song writing draws from a wide range of musical influences, deftly blending folk, jazz, reggae and rock and roll, always with an emphasis on quality and musicianship reminiscent of the classics. Guaranteed to have both parents and children singing along in no time, this is music that the whole family can enjoy together.

Haydn - The Creation

April Fredrick - soprano

Henry Neill - baritone
Richard Laing - conductor
Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra

7.30 pm

Albert Hall, Nottingham

The success of Haydn's Creation was immediate, and its appeal has endured. With its bold use of orchestral colour, inventive rhythms and melodies and dramatic contours, Haydn depicts the creation story in an artistic, and sometimes operative style. Started at the age of 65 and taking two years to complete, the work was considered his supreme achievement. It is a work of great love and faith, with the composer reflecting that he was 'never so devout' as during the time he was writing it.

Tickets: Stalls £18, Arena £15, Students £5, Children FREE where accompanied by a paying adult.
