All set to swing out
The Kel Elliott Band will be appearing at Alford Manor House this weekend as part of the Lincolnshire Rural and Community Touring programme.
The four piece play original material with memorable melodies and superb musicianship with a mixture of blues, acoustic rock and café jazz.
This is the first event that Alford has hosted as part of the touring programme for a number of years and it is being organised by Alford Festival Music who also put on the town's annual jazz picnic.
Andy Taylor, chairman of Alford Festival Music said: "The touring programme is a great scheme and enables people in rural areas to experience some first class music and other entertainment at affordable prices.

"I attended the launch event in Louth in March where the various promoters around Lincolnshire had an opportunity to see some of the acts and then put in a bid to book them.
"Kel Elliot, who sings and plays double bass, and her band performed a few songs and halfway through I was hooked and was determined to try to book them for Alford. I really hope a lot of people come and experience this top notch act for themselves."
Kel Elliot is a singer songwriter with the unusual distinction of being a double bass player. Her songs are said to be upbeat, lyrically optimistic and musically infectious.
A sassy jazz singer, Kel's performances are said to be packed with humour, irony and a touch of mischief, with songs representing a modern approach to jazz and blues, drawing on influences as diverse as Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt and Django Reinhardt.
Kel's big voice and feisty bass playing, accompanied by guitar, keyboards and percussion from her accomplished band, provide audiences with a scintillating show.
When & Where: Saturday. 8pm, Alford Manor House. Tickets available from Alford Manor House or call 01507 463468.
