The perennial reedsman returns with an all-star octet - and charismatic poet Josie Moon - to celebrate the rich history of the Grimsby fishing trade, exploring its myths and misadventures.

In the tradition of Alan’s other collaborations with writers, expect wonderful tunes, expertly arranged, superb soloists, humour and emotion.

 

 

 

At least half of the band - dynamic trombonist Dennis Rollins, contrasting saxists Robert Fowler and Dean Masser and guitarist Pat McCarthy - will be appearing at The Hive for the first time.   This should be a unique and entertaining experience.
