In what was ideal timing the sun at last made an appearance on Saturday making it the perfect summer’s evening for a sold out al fresco performance of Gypsy Swing by the Transatlantic Hot Club.
Violinist and vocalist, Adrien Chevalier, harpist, Ben Creighton Griffiths, double bassist, Ashley John Long and accordionist Jeremy Lohier, combined continental flair and string based rhythms to transport the audience back to 1930s Paris.
More than 200 guests picnicked in the walled garden of Elsing Hall, where there were ‘nothing but blue skies,’ and wonderful music: the setting sun reflecting on the red harp symbolically emphasising the Hot Club sound.
Our thanks to the Transatlantic Hot Club for once again putting on a wonderful fund raising performance for the Trust. Our thanks also go to Patrick Lines and Han Yan Yap, of Elsing Hall for providing the consummate setting for the event.
To all those who attended, we do hope you enjoyed the evening and thank you for supporting the work of the Norfolk Churches Trust.
