‘Saturdays’ at Soup Kitchen with John K
The guys at Soup Kitchen have gone for a simple solution when it came to naming their regular Saturday night event and consequently it will be called… er… “Saturdays”! The night will exhibit friends and local talents in the cavernous surroundings of their underground dancing den. They have DJs on rotation in the Kitchen and hand the cellar over to a different promotion every week. In the Kitchen tonight is John K while in the basement is Rachel Sermanni followed by Swing Ting.
Performing before her debut album ‘Under Mountains‘ comes out on Monday 19th September, Rachel Sermanni hails from a place in the Highlands called Carrbridge which is lovely apparently. Have a listen to her music; just like Carrbridge it’s lovely.Rachel Sermanni

Matt & Phreds
The Ben Holder Trio
Featuring the young 23yr old violinist Ben Holder (unsurprisingly perhaps given the name!) The Ben Holder Trio sees Ben accompanied by pianist Tom Kincaid and Double Bassist Jim Swinnerton, to create one of the most energetic and swinging trios around. Ben Holder is one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK. Taught classically from the age of six, he studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire. During his classical studies, Ben began listening to Jazz – classic masters such as Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson and of course the great jazz violinists including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the awe inspiring Stuff Smith. Alongside his early studies and later at college he embarked on a detailed analysis of these musicians techniques and the way in which they merged this most classical of instruments into the jazz idiom.
