Returning to the Festival after the brilliant concert at the 60th Anniversary event, James will be performing a tribute to Dudley Moore - one of the best loved comedians, film actors and jazz pianists of the twentieth century.
James is the Musical Director at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London and hails from Ashwell, no less.
He will be accompanied by other well known jazz musicians including Polly Gibbons – acclaimed singer /songwriter,
who has recently been performing in the United States.
The concert will feature Dudley’s compositions, light hearted pastiches and other more serious jazz pieces.
