MAY we thank the New Century Ragtime Orchestra for an entertaining evening held in the Bothal Suite in Ashington Leisure Centre.
It was ragtime swing at its best with the Newbiggin belter singing with great jazz authenticity – Newbiggin’s own Lindsay Hannon.
We would like to see these great musicians giving master classes in schools, then perhaps schoolchildren would take up these instruments to continue this great tradition.
