Piano Master Neville Dickie Returns to Massachusetts on May 12, 2015
Being the Yankee Jazz Beat I thought it appropriate to report on the return of British stride pianist extraordinaire Neville Dickie to Massachusetts. Since the closing of the Sherborn Inn to jazz last year, finding the right venue for Dickie to perform that actually had he proper piano requirements took a bit of searching. Fortunately, a place was found at the Bella Costa Ristorante in Framingham, Massachusetts where he will appear with some of his musician friends on May 12th at 7:00 PM.
Dickie has been visiting Massachusetts from Surrey, England for special appearances each year for about twenty years. He is considered a "National Treasure" in Britain for his mastery of Boogie Woogie and Stride piano. He has made hundreds of appearances on BBC radio playing both solo and with his trio. He tours extensively across the US. and all over the world including Germany, France and Switzerland.
Accompanying Dickie on May 12th will be Stan McDonald, Jeff Hughes, Ross Petot and Steve Taddeo.
For reservations call Bella Costa Ristorante, 147 Cochituate Road, Framingham, MA, (508) 626-1726.
