Summer Jazz House Party with the Riviera Ramblers

Yarn Market Hotel calendar_today 18 Jul 2022 place Exmoor, Somerset Prices from £400 pp.

Arrive for dinner on Monday evening and depart smiling after breakfast on Thursday morning having enjoyed three nights’ vibrant, exciting entertainment and fun plus dinner, bed and breakfast at a 3* Hotel in medieval Dunster village, Exmoor National Park. Our jazz breaks, hosted by veteran trumpeter John Shillito, are a well established feature with
Yarn Market guests and jazz aficionados from all over the UK and beyond. John will be leading his popular band from South Devon – the Riviera Ramblers—six excellent musicians steeped in the nostalgic sounds of classic jazz and swing and, with two guitars, adds an additional “gypsy jazz” flavour. Echoes of New Orleans, Harlem and Paris. The band’s repertoire features many beautiful, timeless, melodic, rhythmic tunes and includes vocals from Zoe Lambeth and from John himself. The band will play a different programme each evening and will be open to requests from guests. The bar will be open and the music starts after dinner and continues, with a couple of short breaks,  till late.
