Jazz musicians from across the border will be coming to a village hall.

This is part of their aim to bring jazz to rural communities to enjoy.

Ian Millar, on the sax, and Dominic Spencer, on the keys, are two jazz musicians based in Edinburgh and have had success in their Jazz in the Village concerts.

One such concert will be in West Cumbria - Bothel Village Hall.

Ian and Dominic are unique in the UK Jazz community taking their blend of melodic jazz standards and original compositions to rural communities all over the UK.

They use programmable lighting and bottle lights to create a wonderful intimate atmosphere for the music.

They tell stories of their travels in their tour bus - an old, converted Yorkshire ambulance, in an entertaining evening of creative music and enthusiastic joy.

Ian said: “We are delighted to be performing again after sell-out candlelight concerts on the Glasgow Tall Ship in July 2021 and record sales for our concerts in last year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Dominic said: “We are hoping this makes a welcome release from lockdown and a chance for communities to reconnect.”

“It’s been a difficult time over the last couple of year’s but we had both been practising hard throughout lockdown, even posting some videos of us playing together from our separate homes.

“Throughout lock down we called ourselves the Socially Distanced Duo now we’re getting out and meeting our audience again”

They will be performing at Bothel Village Hall on Sunday, June 5, at 8:00 pmj.

Tickets cost £10, but are free for under-16s
