Watermill Jazz's own photographer Jon Frost is providing photos to go on the page each week, so do go and relive some of the great gigs by taking a look.
For the previous five years we received a PRS Promoters Awards, which helped us book artists that might not have appeared at the club. Due to the valiant efforts of Kathryn Shackleton, having applied to the PRS, we have again been successful in receiving an award for the current season. The award scheme is administered by Jazz Services.
We have since 2006 been privileged to present each year a concert at this superb 300 seater acoustic venue, based on the site of the Yehudi Menuhin School in Stoke d'Abernon. Our connection with the Menuhin was instigated by the late John Usher, who for many years was at the forefront of the local arts scene in the Mole Valley area.
Previous concerts have featured firstly Stan Tracey performing his own composition Under Milk Wood, followed by John Taylor & Gwilym Simcock, Acoustic Triangle, Cleo Laine, Acker Bilk, John Williams & John Etheridge, Claire Martin & Sir Richard Rodney Bennett,the 16 piece All-Star Goodmen Orchestra led by Pete Long, also featuring vocalist Joan Viskant, with their recreation of the music from Benny Goodman’s famous 1938 Carnegie Hall concert and the most recent concert in November 2014 by Stacey Kent.
Watch this space for news of our 10th year at The Menuhin Hall.
