A NIGHT of music and fun featuring East Lancashire’s most celebrated jazz and swing trio will take place in Clitheroe on May 27th in aid of the Friends of Chernobyl’s Children.

The 3 Musikateers, featuring Clitheroe violinist Gaynor Sutcliffe and Accrington guitarist Simon Brady, of Swing Commanders fame, will take to the stage with bass player Bob Buller at the St Mary’s Centre in Church Brow.

Multi-instrumentalist Gaynor was named Musician of the Year at the 2011 British Country Music Awards for her outstanding ability on violin, piano accordion, keyboard, double bass and trombone!

Her fellow Swing Commander Simon Brady won the same award in 2010 and was nominated again in 2011, while The Swing Commanders were nominated as Entertainers of the Year.

They will be joined on stage by Swing Commanders front man Peter Riley, dance duo GI Jive and popular East Lancashire vocalists Gloria Hoole and Julia Hopkinson.

The event, called Swings and Roundabouts, aims to raise funds for the Friends of Chernobyl’s Children, which brings disadvantaged youngsters aged six to 13 from Belarussia to the UK for a month every year.

It starts at 7-30 p.m. and tickets priced £7 (£5 concessions) are available from St James’s House, Clitheroe (tel. 01200 425629) or the St Mary’s Centre (tel. 01200 425522).
