The saxophone/ keyboard duo of Messrs Barnes & Newton met as students in Leeds (where Dave is still a senior lecturer) and have been at the vanguard of British jazz ever since. They will be backed by the excellent Leeds Music College house band, an energetic trio of bass, guitar and drums.
Supporting them are a newly formed Manx ensemble Cooil Hand Fluke, who represent the cutting edge of progressive jazz on the island and by coincidence have three musicians with very strong Leeds connections.
