Eric Ainsworth with Lou Grant Clitheroe's treasured jazz pianist Eric Ainsworth will be performing in a special concert of high calibre jazz standards to raise awareness and funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation on the afternoon of Sunday, October 27th, 2019.

Joining Eric for this two-hour concert include a group of seasoned musicians and singers who have been regular players in Eric's various ensembles down the years.

The skills of his trusted core trio of Jimmy Scaife (drums) and Ken Marley (double bass) will be supplemented by guest musicians Eddie Taylor (trombone / vocals) and Andy Wallis (saxes).

Leading vocal duties will be two fabulous singers at the opposite end of their careers, the wonderful Lyn Fairbanks will be performing songs from the Great American Songbook and the young 'wunderkid' Arthur Geldard, whose gloriously smooth voice and delivery will delight lovers of Frank Sinatra and the Ratpack, among many others.

Guest pianist Ed Lomax will also deputise on piano for some numbers with Lyn.
