Before the Flurry - and something at The Clubhouse

As our end-of-February deadline approaches we anticipate a flurry of entries for Buxton Fringe 2015. So our loins are girded in anticipation. Next week we'll be updating you on the new entries.

Meanwhile it is already obvious that the recently refurbished Old Clubhouse is going to be a hot Fringe venue this year. The Basin Street Jazz and Blues Band is doing two gigs there; they are fronted by the soulful Jules M Scott. Listen to Sugar in my bowl for a taster!

One of last delights of Fringe 2014 was Sam Slide's Trombone Tales. Well the bashful Sam was so moved by the response of two full houses he is back at the Clubhouse for 2015. 

Clubhouse regulars Club Acoustic are putting on a special session for the Fringe on July 15th. More Clubhouse jazz is on the way we are reliably informed - so watch this space.

In the meantime there is much going on in towns and villages all over Derbyshire thanks to Live and Local. Soonest, in the High Peak, is Mambo Jambo - an acoustic roots duo - playing in Chinley on 28 February. Blair Dunlop is at Wormhill Village Hall on 16 May. Fringe favourite Ginny Davis is in Alfreton on 20 March with a couple of plays from her Ruth Rich saga. The brilliant Lady Maisery - if you like The Unthanks then this is for you - are at Great Longstone on 26 Feb and Repton two days later. There is much, much more. Do check out the Live and Local site.
