WORLD JAZZ WEB Caird Hall, Dundee, Sat 24 Jul

The Dundee Guitar Festival will feature the second Scottish appearance by the recently formed all-star guitar trio WEB, featuring the diverse talents of classical guitarist John Williams, jazzman John Etheridge and African guitarist Patrick Bebey.

WEB made their debut at the Perth Festival in May, and grew out of a quintet that John Williams had formed to record the African-influenced The Magic Box album. The band included Etheridge, and played music by the famous Cameroonian musician and composer, Bebey. That band is still active, but the concept has now been extended to this new trio, as Etheridge explained.

‘The quintet is still going, but John Williams fancied trying a slightly different slant on it and decided to ask Patrick Bebey, who is the son of Francis Bebey, to form a trio with us. I hadn’t met Patrick before that, but we went over to Paris and played some music with him, then he came over and stayed with John, and we did a lot of rehearsing and so on, and put it together that way.’

The musicians will perform in various combinations in the course of the concert. Each will have a solo slot to showcase their various styles and there will also be some duos. The show will close with a handful of tunes from the trio.

‘Patrick sings and plays nose flute as well as guitar, and there is a big African influence in the trio part of the show. At the moment we are doing some things by John and some by Patrick and his father, but not yet anything of mine. And we have Chilean tune in there as well. The approach is fairly wide-ranging it’s basically a matter of all our various influences feeding in to the music, we hope in a way that is interesting and exciting.’
