Big Band at Sounds New!

The University Big Band and Ian Swatman brought live music to the heart of Canterbury on Saturday, when they played as part of ‘The Big Bang!’ event in this year’s Sounds New festival, in Whitefriars.

Out in the sunshine, thronging shoppers, tourists and passers-by were treated to a mixture of live big band swing and classics, with soloists Ruby Mutlow and Jo Turner gracing the programme.

The Big Band will be back in action in a few weeks’ time, raising the curtain on this year’s ArtsFest as they present a Big Band Gala evening at the Gulbenkian Theatre, for which they’ll be joined by members of ‘Hullabaloo,’ alumni and friends for an action-packed evening: more details on the website here.
