Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring vocalist Linda Ransom


WHAT: Northampton Jazz Workshop Featuring vocalist Linda Ransom
WHERE: City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA.
WHEN: Tuesday, January 21st from 7:30 to 8:30 followed by the open jazz jam session.

Featuring vocalist Linda Ransom with the Green Street Trio Tuesday, January 21st from 7:30 to 8:30 followed by the open jazz jam session.

Linda Ransom – A voice and style beyond compare. Originally from New London and currently residing in Hartford, she has been singing with some of the finest musicians in CT for decades. Linda’s vocal ability compares with many of the well-known jazz greats such as Nancy Wilson and Sarah Vaughn when performing a standard. Just as easily, she can pour her soul out on an R&B hit by Gladys Knight or Whitney.

The concert set starts at 7:30, followed immediately by the jam session until 10:30. $5 per person room charge for the concert set and donations to the band gratefully accepted. City Sports Grille at Spare Time Northampton, 525 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA. 413-584-4830
