In association with Forge and the Jazz West Midlands we are thrilled to announce that Josephine Davies will play live at The Wakes.
This event will include a supper
Josephine Davies is a solo artist at the forefront of the UK contemporary music scene, pushing the boundaries of jazz with her current main artistic project Satori – a sax/bass/drums trio with an emphasis on extended and collaborative improvisation. It is a project that combines her seeking of freedom of expression with her interest in Japanese philosophy and lifestyle.
Originally from the Shetland Islands and now based in London, UK, Josephine’s writing and playing continues to be infused with a Nordic quality, notably in her use of traditional folk music elements, and her haunting tone reminiscent of the late great tenorist Bobby Wellins.
As a saxophonist she is known for her melodic focus, versatility and unique style which has been described as “consistently inventive” (Jazzwise Magazine), “strong and authoritative” (The JazzMann) and “gifted and imaginative” (All About Jazz).
Deeply influenced by the American composer Maria Shneider, Josephine has been resident composer and tenor player for the London Jazz Orchestra since 2011 and is now embarking on a big band project of her own.
In 2016 Josephine was privileged to be a featured soloist on veteran saxophonist and composer Pete Hurt’s jazz orchestra recording A New Start, which was released to wide acclaim and came second in the British Jazz Awards Best New Album.
Tickets are 15.00 per person includes ticket and jazz supper. Supper will be a single course and will include a choice from 3 dishes all freshly cooked on the evening – examples NOT-SO-CAJUN SHRIMP (Pasta and Shrimp in a Cajun cream sauce): JAMBALAYA (Chicken and Smoked Sausage in savoury rice)
NEW ENGLAND CORN CHOWDER; (Creamy sweetcorn broth with crusty bread). Tickets go on sale at The Wakes on the 1st March
Licensed bar open on the evening serving in addition sweet desserts, a wonderful range of gins, specialist coffees (inc. Espresso Martinis and Irish Coffees) along with a Jazz House cocktail.

Another highly rated film for Broseley and beyond
War in Georgia (not the American one), where local Apkhazians are fighting to break free from Georgia. An Estonian village between the mountains has become empty since almost everyone has returned to their respective homelands.
Only two men stayed: Ivo and Margus. But Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crops of tangerines.
In a bloody conflict in the miniature village, wounded men are left behind, and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. How do they all manage to handle it?
Admission £5.50 – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – cabaret layout
Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
Cabaret layout – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – full of friendliness
