Jazz Legend at Bedales

Later…with Jools Holland (see You Tube) and a little later still – 12 November – with us at Bedales, a legend in British Jazz. If the often-quoted 10,000 hours is what it takes initially, think what 70 years as a professional pianist might do to hone your skills. This promises to be a very special evening – a father/ son piano and drum duo in the first half, drawing on 30 years of music-making together.  Reviews speak of “two masters at the top of their game”. Then there’s the added variety of a quartet in the second half, with Stan Tracey (piano) and Clark Tracey (drums) joined by Bobby Wellins (tenor sax) and Andrew Cleyndert (bass). Book tickets.


Bedales School is one of the UK’s top independent private co-education boarding schools. Bedales comprises three schools situated in Steep, near Petersfield, Hampshire: Dunannie (ages 3–8), Dunhurst (ages 8–13) and Bedales itself (ages 13–18). Established in 1893 Bedales School puts emphasis on the Arts, Sciences, voluntary service, pastoral care, and listening to students’ views. Bedales is acclaimed for its drama, theatre, art and music. The Headmaster is Keith Budge.
