Pat McCarthy Quartet brings ‘all that Jazz’ to Lancashire

Pat McCarthy Quartet, The Very Best of Jazz and Swing

  • Tarleton Library – Thursday 30th November, 6pm
  • Grindleton Pavilion – Friday 1st December, 7:30pm
  • Melling Village Institute – Saturday 2nd December, 7:30pm

Guitarist Pat McCarthy leads his acclaimed quartet for a night of spellbinding performance in three Lancashire venues this November/December.

Hailed as ‘world class’ by icon Humphrey Lyttelton, the quartet features Pat alongside Thom Whitworth (trumpet), Warren Jolly (double bass) and Shannon Reilly (vocals). They present a melodic repertoire of jazz and swing standards, from 1930’s classics to the new generation of jazz hits. Shannon’s vocal influences include Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day and Peggy Lee.

“This is superb music that manages to pull off that difficult trick of having a broad appeal whilst still satisfying the jazz connoisseur.” Gill Wilde – Jazz Promoter of the Year

The show forms part of Spot On Lancashire’s autumn season of touring, taking professional arts events to village halls and libraries across the county. Speaking ahead of the performance, Spot On’s Lyndsey Wilson said:

“I had the opportunity to see the quartet at Manchester International Jazz Festival and was wowed by their beautiful, effortless musicianship matched with a fabulous performance style. The show is a perfect way to relax and enjoy an evening of the sweetest sounds, coolest ‘Standards’ and all that jazz – you are guaranteed a great evening.”
