Jazz fan? Don’t miss this! Yet again we’re bringing quality music to Porthleven.

Join us this Sunday (26thAugust) and whilst you dine you’ll be serenaded by not one but two jazz heroines as our friend and regular Sunday performer Claudia Langmead is joined by her friend, jazz guitarist Deirdre Cartwright from 7-9pm.

‘If there is a more complete guitarist in contemporary music than Deirdre Cartwright- I’d like to know who it is.’
Dave Gelly, Observer April 2008

Deirdre became well known in the 1980’s as a result of presenting the ground-breaking BBC series Rockschool, which attracted audiences of 2 million viewers every week in the UK and was subsequently shown worldwide. She then went on to compose and perform with the Guest Stars with whom she recorded three albums and toured the world.

Since forming her own group in has toured extensively in the UK and abroad including representing Great Britain at the European Jazz Festival in Mexico City and her trio featuring in a concert and live radio broadcast at the Warsaw International Guitar Festival.

“Cartwright is a melodic, funky and hard swinging guitarist who has learned from a mixture of rock guitar heroes like Carlos Santana and melodically intricate bop guitar stars such as Tal Farlow.”
John Fordham, The Guardian
