Jazz at St John’s Church – Saturday 10th September at 7.30pm

The Friends of St John’s is holding a wonderful jazz evening at St John the Baptist Church in North Bovey on Saturday 10th September at 7.30pm, featuring Alan Barnes, David Newton and Jennifer Jones.  It’s been a while since these extraordinary musicians have gathered in the Church here, and this time will be their fourth outing to the village together.

Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing together now for 45 years. These multi award-winners cover a vast repertoire, and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. Tonight they are playing together with Jennifer Jones, on vocals, a friend and fellow musician of many years. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of jazz melodies.

This will be a collaborative trio. All three of these musicians may play together, or in pairs, or even solo from time to time.  It will be an adventure!  And it’s bound to be fun!

Tickets are £14, and may be purchased by email: or 07843 376060.  We are also using a ticket company – – from which the cost is the same, but with a small transaction fee.

The Church will be open from 6.30pm, when the bar will also be open!  There will also be a raffle.  And, PLEASE NOTE that all profits will go to the Friends of St John’s.  Do please invite friends, and spread the word!  

Hope to see you there!
