Chance to hear Archie.

Byline: By Alan Nichol

Elsewhere in the region there is a rare chance to catch the Glasgow-born traditional singer Archie Fisher at the South Shields Folk Club's venue at the Westoe Rugby Club, Dean Road, on Sunday night.

Archie was a friend and contemporary of Bert Jansch and the three elements of the formative Incredible String Band, Robin Williamson, Clive Palmer and Mike Heron on the Edinburgh folk scene of the 60s.

On Tuesday, there is jazz at the Cluny when Jim Rattigan's Jazz French Horn project plays the Byker venue.

Ian Carr, in the Rough Guide to Jazz, said Rattigan was "a brilliant and versatile jazz soloist on French horn and an interesting and questing composer".

There is a further helping on Friday, June 30, at Gateshead's Caedmon Hall, Prince Consort Road, when Gateshead Council and Jazz North-East present the Peter King Alan Skidmore Quintet.

The two veteran sax-masters and their band play a tribute to the drum virtuoso (and ex-John Coltrane sidekick), Elvin Jones.
