Chris Jagger, Elliet Mackrell and David Hatfield have toured across Europe from Madrid to Copenhagen with their trio show which features individual tunes, harmonies and great fiddle playing. Their repertoire includes many of Chris’s songs, Cajun tunes and the odd Hank Williams’ number to go along with the entertainment. It’s a lively and thoughtful set to entertain and enjoy!

Chris Jagger’s first records were made during the 1970’s for David Geffen of Asylum Records in Los Angeles and he toured the USA and the UK. He revitalised his song writing in the late 1980’s when he worked in France as the lyricist for producer Franck Langolf [Vanessa Paradis] and helped brother Mick out on the Rolling Stones’ acclaimed albums “Dirty Work” and then later “Steel Wheels”. Chris decided to then concentrate on his own material and the result was the critically acclaimed Sequel C.D. ‘Atcha!’ in 1994, a mix of Cajun style with Chris’s individual brand of song writing. Acclaimed and respected music critic Tony Parsons in the Telegraph compared his lyrics to those of the famed Sammy Cahn. Contributions came from David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) on ‘Lhasa Town’, Leo Sayer and a touch of brother Mick on ‘Stand Up for The Foot.’ This record was later released in the US by Curb Records as ‘Rock the Zydeco’ where Chris and his band promoted the record on the Conan O’Brien Show for NBC. He made four more subsequent CDs including ‘The Ridge’, a solo effort featuring Danny Thompson on double bass and John Etheridge on guitar.

Chris recently signed his catalogue including publishing to BMG in Berlin. He has picked all the best tracks from his recordings over the past twenty years and released a new album called ‘All the Best’, which is now available on CD.

 

Tickets: £15.50; £14.50 concs.
