Thursday 5th March 7:30pm – Don Grusin Live at The Plough – Free Entry!


Don Grusin – Now playing Live at The Plough with a full band – Thursday 5th March 8pm – FREE!


The Plough Shepreth and Ananda Recordings are honoured (and very, very excited!) to announce that the amazing Don Grusin will now be playing The Mandolin Stage at The Plough with a full band, on Thursday 5th March 2015. This free concert replaces the ticketed, solo performance previously scheduled in The Rhee Gallery. All ticket holders can gain a refund from the bar or exchange their tickets against supper or drinks.

Artist, innovator, educator, performer and advocate for social change, Don Grusin, esteemed American composer, producer, arranger and pianist with 3 Grammy’s, 20 CD’s and an unstoppable global vision that infuses everything he does from recording to teaching, flys in to the UK in March. Whilst visiting from his LA home, Don will be spending time at some of his favourite recording studios and whilst over here, has agreed to a one-off performance at The Plough Shepreth. Don rarely has the opportunity to play the UK so this really is a unique opportunity to experience one of the Jazz greats in an intimate setting.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to be enthralled and captivated by this amazing American composer and pianist who has performed and collaborated with the finest jazz musicians of his generation. Harvey Mason, Lee Ritenour, Nathan East, Gilberto Gil, Brenda Russell, Joe Pass, Phil Perry, Patti Austin, Natali Rene, Ernie Watts, Nelson Rangell, Sadao Watanabe, Charlie Bisharat,  Ricardo Silveira, Frank Quintero, Abraham Laboriel, Oscar Seaton, and of course brother Don Grusin, and Bill Sharpe and Shakatak, Don has recorded and performed with them all.

Check out the film of his 2004 concert “The Hang” for a taster of some of the finest Jazz you will ever experience.

Tables can be booked for supper (and those by the stage are obviously going fast!) or just pitch up and treat your ears to some of the finest Jazz you will hear this year.
