8th October - Barton on Humber DN18 5JR

The Ropewalk welcomes back Julie Edwards, the first lady of swing, who has an expressive, vocal style. With many accolades she is indeed “a true jazz singer – sparkles like a real gem, her voice is a delight to listen to”. Ed Barnwell started playing at three years of age, continuing at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal Northern College of Music. A composer, educator and powerful performer, he has had commissions for Manchester Jazz Festival and Edinburgh International Festival.

John Etheridge rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond as, “one of the best guitarists in the world”. He is a prodigiously gifted and creative player whose approach to music can only be described as eclectic, without artificial musical boundaries. John has headed many jazz festivals and recorded with Stephan Grapelli, John Williams and our other sensational headline singer-songwriter.
Vimala Rowe who sings with John, as well as a select band was winner of The Indy Music Award – Best Soul/Jazz/Funk, and described by The Arts Desk as “sensational”.

Matt Smith is described by Scarborough Jazz as “...a powerful and inventive tenor”. He is recognised as a young budding jazz star who will surely follow in the footsteps of Snake Davis with his soul-jazz style. We are pleased to feature his quintet including Martin Jones on trumpet. “Definitely one to watch out for!” Matt will also be running an exclusive horn workshop during Saturday.

Late Night Maurauders are a duo of immense stature with Ruth Scott presenting earthy, original and traditional gut-wrenching blues and sweet ballads accompanied by the inventive, driving as well as expressive piano style of Ben Saville.

Old John Aubrey takes his audience by the hand and, with a twinkle in his eye, leads you through a day late in his life, launching into wicked tales. He regales you with stories of his contemporaries – Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Nell Gwyn – and stories gleaned as a child from folk who knew the likes of Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh. Once he starts speaking to you he is like the Ancient Mariner – you cannot choose but hear. Forget the modern blogger.
