A string quartet will play a fundraising gig for the thirtieth anniversary of the National Jazz Archives.

The Julian Marc Stringle Quartet will run through standards by Benny Goodman, Buddy de Franco and Arnie Shaw, among others, in Loughton on June 23 at 2.30pm.

Julian Marc Stringle is recognised as Europe’s most stylish performer on the clarinet and has won several British Jazz awards, with his highly melodic music, distinct sound and technique.

Award-winning Canadian guitar virtuoso Dominic Ashworth will play alongside him.

Mr Stringle said: “I’ve played in several fundraising concerts for the Archive over the years, and it’s a pleasure to bring my own group and help support the Archive, especially in this anniversary year.”

The venue for the concert is Loughton Methodist Church at 260 High Road, 200m from the Archive’s home in Loughton Library.

The concert starts at 2.30pm and tickets cost £15.
