“Jazz in the Village” – tour
IAN MILLAR & DOMINIC SPENCER – saxophone & piano jazz duo
Ian and Dominic have been playing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and originals compositions.
Based in Edinburgh, the duo has regularly and extensively toured Scotland. They have embarked on many rural tours, often bringing jazz for the first time to remote communities, performing in intimate settings. The beautiful Scottish scenery that they have seen on their travels has inspired the writing of many pieces of music by Ian.
More recently they have extended their tours to jazz clubs, villages, small theatres, and arts venues. They have played in Northumberland, North & South Yorkshire, Cumbria, Bedfordshire and Shropshire making the occasional trip further south including a European trip to Brussels where they performed in the The Music Village Jazz Club.
This exciting new endeavour “Jazz in the Village” will take them even further up and down the country playing in villages all over Britain.
For a special night out, The White Horse in Graffham is offering a Pre Theatre Menu for this event, booking is essential to ensure availability through whitehorsegraffham.com

“…he really used the vast range of the tenor, always with gentle lyricism”
“…really excellent Millar originals…”
“Beautiful soaring magic! I was blown away by your show, just breath-taking!”
“What a lovely and exhilarating performance! Enjoyed the interaction between the two of you, and the obvious love you have for what you do.”
“What a good duo this is! Ian Millar’s soft lyrical tenor sax is supported by Dominic Spencer’s intricate piano runs, each giving one another the space to play beautifully crafted solos.”
“…expect warm, intelligent, reflective, human music…”
“Ian Millar’s own composition Morning Dew opened the performance, its lovely sinuous melody ranging freely from the heights to the depths of the tenor sax voice.”
“…a unique performance not only in its introduction of many new pieces but also in the splendidly relaxed jazz styling; music that had its own special flavour and was not a copy of anything else.”
