Bute’s gypsy jazz quartet, Les Gitanes, will take to a different Rothesay stage this coming week in a joint fund-raiser for Bute Museum and the RNLI.

It’s the second year of the ‘Jazz at the Museum’ concert - and if last November’s first effort is any guide, those who go along are in for a real treat.

The popularity of the gypsy jazz genre on Bute was underlined by the full house who watched Rose Room’s performance in the latest Jazz at the Vic concert earlier this month, and Les Gitanes - comprising Tim Saul, Keith McIntyre, Alec Mack and Paul McKay - are sure to provide a great evening’s entertainment.

Their set list for the concert, on Wednesday, November 25, includes two pieces new to the group - Astor Piazolla’s Liber Tango and Ma Y Sol by Lulo Reinhardt, great-nephew of Django - as well as the established repertoire which has made the quartet a firm local favourite.

Admission is £10, including a welcome drink - there’s also a licensed bar, which means the event is restricted to over-18s. Tickets are available from the Museum and Brechin’s on Bridgend Street.
