JOHN ETHERIDGE'S BLUE SPIRITS are at FRINGE JAZZ at THE BRISTOL FRINGE Clifton Village on Wednesday 11th December at 8PM. Tickets £15.
British Jazz guitar legend John Etheridge digs deep into the bluesy side of his repertoire alongside organ maestro Pete Whittaker and brilliant drummer Nic France. Blue Spirits last played Fringe Jazz six years ago and that gig is remembered as one of our best ever nights - don't miss this gig.
JOHN ETHERIDGE rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond and has been described by Pat Metheny as "One of the best guitarists in the world". He is a prodigiously gifted and creative player whose approach to music can only be described as 'eclectic' as he refuses to accommodate or even acknowledge artificial musical boundaries. His range is well illustrated by his years of touring and recording with the iconic Stephane Grappelli while simultaneously doing likewise with the legendary jazz-fusion group, The Soft Machine. John is equally at home on acoustic and electric guitar and his willingness to engage with so many styles is matched by his ability to excel in any of them. He has played with Soft Machine, John Williams, Yehudi Menuhin, Dizzie Gillespie, Herb Ellis, Pat Metheny, Birelli Lagrene, Barney Kessel, Arild Andersen, Elton Dean, Alan Skidmore, Danny Thompson, Chris Garrick, Didier Lockwood, Ric Sanders, John Stevens, Andy Summers, Vimala Rowe, Nigel Kennedy and countless others.
Tickets are also available at TREBLEROCK Guitar Shop, 52 The Mall in Clifton Village. Treblerock is open Mon - Sat.
