Sir Richard’s date

In your article last week, taken from a feature in The Guardian, you state Sir Richard Rodney Bennett appeared in last year’s Jazz Festival.

That appearance was four years ago and Sir Richard, who is president of Budleigh Jazz Festival, is performing again on April 20 in the 2012 festival, with Claire Martin OBE, “British Jazz Vocalist of the Year”, at The Budleigh Public Hall, in the first of three major concerts featuring all that is good in world jazz.
