An afternoon of gypsy jazz with one of Scotland’s leading ‘session’ musicians is in store for Bute’s music fans in the latest ‘Jazz at the Vic’ session this Sunday, March 6.

John Burgess will join local quartet Les Gitanes on stage at the Victoria Hotel in the last of this winter’s monthly sessions organised by, and in support of, the Isle of Bute Jazz Festival.

Tickets are available in advance from the Victoria Hotel (tel 01700 500016) and from Brechin’s on Bridgend Street (tel 01700 502922), and on the door on Sunday afternoon, subject to availability - but given the usual popularity of the ‘Jazz at the Vic’ concerts, you’d be well advised to secure your place in the audience before the gig!
