Making a welcome return to Clitheroe, the Asaf Sirkis Trio will perform at the latest monthly gig hosted by the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Club.

Headed by Sirkis – arguably the leading drummer and percussionist of the contemporary British jazz scene – the trio will perform material from Sirkis’ two most recent CDs.

The gig takes place on Thursday July 5th at the club’s usual venue, the Atrium Café Bar, at Clitheroe Castle, and starting 8 p.m. The venue has a licensed bar plus food, and good parking.

Tickets are £10 at the door with a £2 discount for club members and half-price for students and under-16s.

After this the club takes a summer break and its next gig at The Atrium will be The J. J. Wheeler Quintet on Thursday September 6th. For more information about the club, including forthcoming gigs and how to join, visit its website at: www.rvjazzandblues.co.uk
