opening new doors to the arts


Alan Barnes and David Newton Live

Music lovers in East Yorkshire are being treated to a live jazz performance this autumn as part of ArtERY Live’s autumn season of events.

Musicians, Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets for 40 years. These multiple award winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience.

David is one of the greatest solo jazz pianists this country has ever produced and Alan plays multi reed instruments- all the saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet. They have developed an empathy and telepathic sympathy which only playing together for many years can bring.

The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes and peppered with humour.

They will be appearing at the following times and venues;
