Hot Jazz and Blues with Del Rey and Adam Franklin! 6 June ’17 | @thecumby

Back by popular demand!

The Fabulous Del Rey returns to Newcastle on her 2017 UK Tour!

“Whilst known for her amazing instrumental skills … it should not be overlooked that Del Rey always provides a very entertaining show, full of variety, drama and humour.”
Blues In Britain

“Del Rey is one of the greatest modern players of the metal-bodied resonator guitar.”
Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“Del Rey is one of the most sublime modern guitarists.“
La Hora del Blues Barcelona

This time with the Amazing Adam Franklin!

“Britain’s best kept secret!”
Steve James, USA

“Like a cross between Robert Johnson and Joe Strummer!”
Two Rivers Folk Festival, Wales.

“Franklin’s exemplary resonator picking and slide playing demonstrates a dedication to the instrument that would be the envy of some of the legends he emulates”
Record Collector Magazine

“Adam knows enough about old-style blues to be worth listening to and is irreverent enough to be exciting.  He’s got the beat, you won’t be bored.” 
Del Rey, USA

1. Ukulele Workshop: Hot Jazz Rhythm Picking

Adam Franklin is a fantastic tutor, as anyone who has attended his Workshop on “Hot Jazz Rhythm Picking for Ukulele” will testify!

  • In this workshop you will learn some easily remembered picking patterns and how to use them to provide a solid rhythmic foundation to ANY song in ANY style – not just “hot jazz”!
  • Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced player, you will find this technique a very useful tool to add that “extra something” to sing-alongs and jams!
  • Chord charts and Finger-Picking Tabs for “Dr Jazz” will be provided – leave a comment on this post if you have booked a place and would like copies in advance!

2. Guitar Workshop: Moving Bass Lines

After Del Rey’s last performance, guitarists in the audience asked her if she could come back to run a Guitar Workshop. So that is what Del is going to do for us this time, focussing on “Moving Bass Lines”!

  • Want to play like a pianist? Walking and boogie-woogie bass lines for fingerstyle guitar! Learn the positions where you can find both chords and  moving bass.
  • Intermediate-Advanced Level.  Standard tuning. Recording permitted.
  • Skills Needed:
    • You will need to be comfortable holding partial chords while moving a bass line, and with switching fingers to maintain a position.
    • No barre chords involved.
  • Who will benefit from this Workshop:
    • Any guitarist with these skills who would like to expand their sound in blues and jazz will learn useful vocabulary and ways of using chords they already know.
    • Fingerpickers and players with good fret-hand strength will get the most benefit.

3. Hot Jazz and Blues Concert

Del Rey and Adam Franklin Resonate! Jazz and Blues Duets, swapping instruments and vocals!

Del and Adam often run workshops and perform together in the South of England when Del is in the UK.  We are so pleased to bring them up to the North East to run Guitar and Ukulele Workshops and perform for us in concert!

Del Rey Played Newcastle – and won our hearts! @thecumby

Another wonderful workshop and fantastic performance by Del Rey at The Cumberland Arms on Wed 2nd September!

Keith Perry very kindly took group photo’s before the Ukulele Workshop and Aaron Tucker snapped away indoors!

There were over forty people at Del’s guitar and ukulele performance – the biggest turnout so far!

Some of the comments posted online, from people who travelled from across the north east and Cumbria:

“Went to see Del Ray at The Cumberland Arms in Byker the other night. I thought it was brilliant.  Mesmerising”

“Thoroughly enjoyed it last night . . . Del Rey, what a talented lady and a good sense of humour!! Looking forward to next year and finishing my “homework!!”

“What a great night!”

“Truly awesome – you had to be there!”

Many thanks to everyone who took video and uploaded it to YouTube – especially to Paul Hurrell, who not only captured Del’s “Workshop Highlights” but all of her performance!
