Lunchtime concerts (every Tuesday)

Heath Street Arts present


Following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, the lunchtime concerts are now taking place in the church again. All concerts will follow current Covid guidelines.

Our weekly lunchtime concert series takes place every Tuesday. Entry is free and there is a retiring collection for the musicians, giving you the chance to support them both in listening and by giving what you can financially. You can also bring your lunch in to eat (nothing too crunchy, please!) and there is fresh tea/coffee available. Concerts begin at 1 pm.

Held at Heath Street Baptist Church - see map and get directionsAlso live streamed on the Heath Street Arts YouTube channel.

People of all ages (including children) are welcome to enjoy the informal nature of the concert, and you can come and go as you wish.

There is step-free access at the church, and wheelchair users are welcome.

13 July 2021 NCW3 Trio feat Shane Forbes and Conor Chaplin
(Nick Costley-White)

A mix of music from the jazz canon as well as their own compositions. 

The NCW3 trio is led by Nick Costley White. Nick is one of the most in demand guitarists on the UK jazz scene, renowned for a deep understanding of the jazz tradition and repertoire, alongside a virtuosic technique and progressive approach to improvising. Nick is lucky enough to have performed with some of the most renowned jazz musicians in the country including Martin Speake, Stan Sulzmann, Gareth Lockrane, Lewis Wright, Steve Fishwick, Brandon Allen, Jeff Williams and Asaf Sirkis. Nick performs extensively throughout the UK as well as touring in Europe, Australia, China and South America.

Nick’s debut album 'Detour Ahead' was released in July 2018 to critical acclaim: “Costley-White proves both his virtuosity and ability to write subtle and engaging tunes” (All About Jazz). Nick has also contributed to over a dozen studio albums as a sideman with a variety of jazz groups.

Upon graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011 Nick was awarded the Yamaha Scholarship for Outstanding Jazz Musicians.

Nick is proud to play a Trenier Jazz Special, hand made for him by renowned guitar luthier Bryant Trenier.

20 July 2021 One Voice, One Cello & A Mad Belgian This duo are a truly unique and exciting ensemble. They consist of Englishman Rupert Gillett & Belgian Jennifer El Gammal, armed with only a cello, a soprano sax, their two intertwined singing voices and an occasional melodeon. Using this stripped down and quirky combination, they produce a sound which is far bigger than the sum of its parts. They are folk singers, jazz improvisers, chamber musicians and storytellers, and their live performances are known for their grace, wit and virtuosity. Lush and soaring melodies, toe tapping rhythms, gorgeous vocal harmonies or wild jazzy excursions: all of these things could happen in a show.
