The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in Berriew welcomes The Derek Harrison Band on June 22 for an evening of jazz.

Stunning boogie piano will meld with Fats Waller influences as Derek (piano / vocal) amusingly reflects on his New Orleans, Los Angeles and QM2 experiences and brings stardust Jazz Standards to twinkle the exhibits at ALMoS.

Stuart Tanner on bass, dynamic drummer Graham ‘Rockit’ Ashley and, bringing his Chet Baker and John Coltrane influences, trumpeter Stan Williams complete this versatile swinging line-up.  Also included is a light supper of Gumbo and Cornbread.

“This is a completely new line-up for the museum,” said ALMoS administrator, Anne-Marie Pope, “I can’t wait to hear all Derek’s stories, the amazing playing and the fantastic food – it will be a wonderfully entertaining evening.”

The Derek Harrison Band will play at 8.15pm, shortly after doors open at 8pm.  Tickets are £12.50 in advance, £15 on the door, with reductions for under 16s and free for under 10s, where they do not require a seat.

Advance tickets can be bought from here, or in person at either the Museum, at The Lion Hotel, Berriew or at R. H. Bunners, Arthur Street, Montgomery. 

ALMoS opened in Berriew in 1991 and celebrated an auspicious 25-year silver anniversary in 2016.  The museum is open from 12-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout June, July, August and September and at other times by arrangement.

Usual entry to the museum is £3, with concessions £1.50 and families £8.
