Is Karl Hird (clnt) related to James Hird (clnt)?  I played with Jim Hird

> I put my money where my keyboard is and went to England to attend listmate
> John Petters' Shakespeare Jazz'n'Swing Festival in Stratford upon Avon.
> How does one sum up a wonderful festival in a few words?
> John assembled an impressive roster of musicians: Chez Chesterman on cornet
> (the closest there is to Red Allen?), Allen Beechy, Gary Wood, Andy Dickens
> and Alan Bateman (trumpet), Mike Pointon and Dave Hewett (trombone), John
> Wurr (ex-Colyer), Pete Allen, Duncan Batchelor, Richard Exall, Amy
> Roberts.Karl Hird and David Horniblow (reeds), Tim Huskisson (new to me),
> JJ Vinten, Dave Browning and Colin Bray on piano (the latter - also vibes),
> some great banjo/guitar players: Tim Phillips, Jim Douglas (of Alex Welsh
> fame) and Jonathan Graham, the wonderful 27 year old Ben Holder on violin,
> the omnipresent bassist Keith Donald, and John and the youthful Jack Amblin
> (probably under 30) and drums.  The programme was well variegated - New
> Orleans (Kid Ory Salute, Tribute to Ken Colyer and a spirituals show,
> Chicago Dixieland, Gypsy swing and tributes to Benny Goodman and to Johnny
> Hodges - who could ask for anything more?
> In addition, John gave a jazz lecture and conducted a jazz quiz, both very
> entertaining with some great music.
> The musicians ages ranged from the 20's to mid-70's, which was good.  The
> age of the audience, however, emphasized what's wrong with such festivals -
> I felt young there!  Not that there were no younger people, but most seemed
> to be my age or older.  Of course, the venue - the Crowne Plaza - hardly
> encouraged younger people.
> And there was a CD stall - I bought eight CDs, and have not yet had the
> time to hear them all!
> Before going I phoned George Huxley to find out whether he was playing
> around the time of the festival, and then went to Sollihull to hear George
> and his band at the British Legion.  After the festival I went to hear the
> excellent Gary Potter Hot Club Quartet at that Mecca of Gypsy swing, the
> Quecumbar.
> Last Friday I hear the revived Good Time Jazz Featuring the soprano sax of
> Jacues Sany.
> Tomorrow - the Isradixie at the Shablul in the Tel-Aviv Port.
> Cheers
