Yardbird Arts Club, founded by jazz and blues guitarist Remi Harris and his wife Dani Harris, based near Tenbury Wells, will be hosting the legendary jazz guitarist John Etheridge at Fownhope Memorial Hall Saturday, December 1.

John Etheridge is a virtuoso fusion guitarist, and is claimed to have helped shape the character of modern jazz guitar. He has been described by fellow fretsman Pat Metheny as 'one of the best guitarists in the world', a distinction that is due to his tireless exploration of the possibilities of his instrument. A hugely respected artist in his own right, Etheridge also claims an impressive collaborative history, from his seminal work with groundbreaking fusion group Soft Machine to his long standing status as the guitarist of choice for jazz icon Stephane Grappelli.

Remi Harris, originally from Bromyard, will open for John Etheridge.

Tickets available from Dani Harris on 01584 881 564 / 07814 986 868 or email yardbirdarts@gmail.com. For more information visit yardbirdarts.com
