The Con Fest 2009 and a deal for LondonJazz readers

New Zealand/ New York bassist Matt Penman from SF Jazz Collective

I spoke to trumpeter/ promoter Richard Turner about the three night festival he is running at the Con Cellar Bar this weekend.

-Turner has been running gigs at the Con since 2006, and this is a richly-deserved celebration.
-Music is from 9pm to 1am.
-The venue is by the canal in Camden Town.
-You’ll be up close to some exciting music: the capacity is just eighty people.
-It’s cheap! Admission on Saturday for a triple bill of exciting young UK bands is £5. It’s £10 for the international bands on the other two nights.

-And here’s a deal:Turner tells me that if you email jazzattheconcellarbar@gmail.com
or text him on 07830 255 958 LondonJazz readers can get all three nights for £20.
