Activities and events labelled as 'Taking Place In Cov 2021' have not been produced or commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust but are taking place during the City of Culture year.

In 2021 Ewan Bleach was voted the best contemporary jazz clarinet player (male) in the world, an accolade which hardly does him credit, because contemporary jazz is not his bag! The 1930’s is his milieu.

Undoubtedly the best UK musician of his generation, if not the country’s best living musician, The Village Butty is totally delighted to be hosting him and friends for two consecutive days. Today he’ll be playing his second instrument – the piano – for a marathon five hour gig. Featuring greats from the past, music hall wonders and his own compositions, Ewan will be playing both clarinet and piano at the same time.

This is a brilliant moment to catch this sublime music before the inevitable international stardom. In 100 years there will be a blue plaque in Coventry Canal Basin saying “Ewan Bleach played here”. Don’t miss out!
