Great music from our favourite young band HAMLET who recorded this stunning set live at the Blue Lamp just before Christmas. Inventive, original, memorable compositions and great improvisation, Hamlet rank among the very best bands Aberdeen has produced. Destined for great things so catch them now, live and in top form from the comfort of your home on Thursday 7th January when the gig goes live on our YouTube Channel



And on Facebook




No better way to welcome 2021 and the promise of better days ahead at Scotland’s top jazz venue.


The gig will be free to access but we ask that you donate £5 if you can afford it or more if you are able to. We rely on your great support to keep jazz live for the UK’s best audience and our heartfelt thanks to all those who donated to the Guitar Trio stream last month.

Subject to funding and your support we plan to resume weekly Thursday night gigs, streamed at first, attended as soon as we are allowed, early in 2021.


We’ll keep you posted!
