Jazz & Blues Appreciation

Jazz & Blues Appreciation

This is a new group which started in September 2019. Ealing U3A Jazz & Blues Appreciation group is intended to be a group that attends live performances so will meet at various dates, times and places.

The intention is to help members find companions to attend music events. If you are considering going to an event, you can tell other members about it, and arrange to meet up or travel with other people with the same interest. Events may range from main-venue concerts to Sunday lunch in the pub with a band playing - whatever people may fancy.

The most efficient communication for this is via a 'Whatsapp' group on your smartphone - but if you don't have 'Whatsapp' or are not comfortable with this, email is also available. A list of suggested events will also be maintained on the U3A website - if you are interested in one of these or wish to suggest something yourself, please contact the Convenor as indicated.

The current event list is shown below:

Convenor: Phil Hart, tel - 07986 465606, or email through the blue bird, above right.
