Women and Brass

Fri 13 Jul 2018 , 7:30 pm

| £18

This year, the Durham Brass festival celebrates women brass players and composers, beginning with a tribute concert to the legendary bandleader Ivy Benson. Her all-female band overcame scepticism and prejudice to become one of the most popular and famous dance bands during the war years and beyond. Original Ivy Benson band member Chrissy Lee brings her dynamic all-female big band featuring many of the UK’s leading female jazz stars to salute Ivy’s pioneering spirit. Our celebration will also include internet sensation and Swedish Jazz trumpet star Gunhild Carling whose high energy performances and remarkable multi-instrument videos have been viewed millions of times on YouTube.

Tickets £18 (£16 concessions) available in person from Gala Theatre Box Office, by telephone 03333 266600 or online via the link below.
