The Jazz Sessions Extra happen whenever the opportunity arises. These sessions allow us to play with the format and be a little more experimental with our programming. Keep an eye on this website or join the Jazz mailing list at the bottom of the page.


The Matthew Mackellar Trio,
featuring Julija Jacenaite

Young drum maestro Matthew is about to head off to study on the prestigious Jazz course at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass.  Before he goes this is a last chance for some time to see his trio, featuring the equally prodigious Joel Brown on piano, and local stalwart Paul Grainger on bass.

They are joined today by singer Julija Jacenaite, an alumnus of Vilnius University Institute of Culture and Art, who has supported artists as varied as Kurt Elling and Joe Zawinul on their tours of Lithuania.

The band will be playing a range of standards, contemporary jazz and blues-tinged originals.

**Please note: This is a Sunday afternoon gig**

Doors from 3:00pm, music starts at 4pm (Two 45 min sets with a break)
