Highlights include the Simon Spillett Quartet who are playing at the Keep pub in Castle Street on Friday evening starting at 8pm.

His band includes pianist John Critchinson (long-time associate of Ronnie Scott), American bassist Tim Wells and drum icon Spike Wells.

On Saturday evening at the Keep the Jamie O’Donnell Quartet are playing. His late sister Lucy, shared a table at school with Julian Lennon, who took a picture home to his dad (John), who asked him: “What’s that?” Julian replied: “Lucy in the sky with diamonds.” The rest is history!
