Guitarist Sagat Guirey will be performing in the upstairs room of The Avocet with his group KNOWN UNKNOWNS.
FREE ADMISSION (donations most welcome!)
Sagat was classically trained in London, then later attended the Dick Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, specialising in jazz guitar, composition and arranging. He was also lucky enough to have private lessons with jazz guitar legends Ted Greene and Phil Upchurch. More recently he studied gypsy jazz with Lollo Meier in The Netherlands. And also with Sheryl Bailey and Jonathan Kreisberg. Sagat has also composed music for film, TV and commercials and worked with many artists including Nigel Kennedy, Belinda Carlisle, Roachford, Robert Trujillo and many others.
Tonight Sagat will be performing with fellow guitarist Rob Palmer, electric bassist Rodney Teague and drummer Dave Wallace to play a set which will include tunes by John Scofield, Jimmy Smith, The Crusaders, Kenny Burrell and The Meters. In the second set the quartet will be joined by vocalist Véronique Joly.
This gig will be held at The Avocet (formerly The Cow), next to Parkstone Railway Station. Please note the 20:00 (8 pm) start time for the forseeable future.
