The Arcadia Jazz Band, inspired by the sound of Humphrey Lyttelton, comes to Crewkerne on Friday July 28th for a toe tapping evening concert at the Henhayes Community Centre. Arcadia is led by Clive Smith on trumpet and vocals, accompanied by Richard Steward on saxophone, Richard Llewellyn on guitar, Mike Sayers on bass, Mike Hurley on keyboard and Steve Barnett on drums.
Clive Smith was a personal friend of the late great jazz musician Humphrey Lyttelton. In the 1990s, Clive organised a concert with Humphrey and first class jazz singer Helen Shapiro at Rousdon near Seaton in Devon.
