Please join us as exciting young local jazz talent Ciaran Roberts Osterberg performs at Inchyra alongside an incredible line up of internationally acclaimed jazz musicians. The jazz talent stepping up to play at Inchyra on this special night is growing by the day and Ciaran will now be joined by guitarist Malcolm MacFarlane, saxophonist Gordon McNeil, vocalist Kim Hamilton Duffy, pianist Ian Matthieson and bass player Andy Sharzey. Gathering together for one night only at Inchyra, this specially created programme of New York Jazz will immerse you in the spirit of New York jazz, paying homage to legends such as Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Chick Corea.
We are delighted to be donating all proceeds from this show to help this outstanding young musician fund a scholarship place at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Dundee born Ciaran suffered terrible bullying at school and took to the music rooms to escape. Through this he has developed into an exceptional multi-instrumentalist and singer and, incredibly, has now been offered a place at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, one of the world’s premier music schools with alumni including greats like Quincy Jones, Mike Stern, Tommy Smith and John Meyer.
This is an amazing story of a boy fighting the odds. Ciaran has gone on to win critical acclaim, the support of international stars such as Curtis Stigers, and an endorsement from Grammy Award-winning musician Antonio Sanchez. He has headlined the Dundee Jazz Festival and has made appearances at Langtoun Jazz Festival, Tartan Day at the US Consulate, venues across Scotland and, to cap it all, in May 2018 he was invited to play for the Royal Family at Windsor Castle.
Ciaran has a further battle to fight though as the cost of studying at Berklee is an eye-watering £55,000 a year. Impressively, through a combination of scholarships, grants, support from the Dewar Arts Trust and other donations he is well on his way to raising the money. Coverage from STV, BBC Radio Scotland and newspapers across Scotland has helped him raise £39,000 so far. Ciaran wrote to us a couple of months ago and we were so incredibly impressed by him that we very much want to do what we can to help him fulfil his dream to study at Berklee.
We are donating proceeds from the evening towards Ciaran’s fundraising for Berklee so please join us to help him on his way.
TICKETING: Tickets for this show at Inchyra can be purchased online through Ticketsource. Tickets are print at home e-tickets meaning there are no delivery charges. Tickets are transferable but non-refundable – this means that, once you have purchased a ticket you can give it or sell it to someone but it cannot be refunded by the venue. This is standard practice for live shows as it would be impossible to run shows if you couldn’t rely on the ticket sales.
ACCESS TO INCHYRA: Inchyra is a private home which is opened up for shows. The car park will open an hour before the doors open, which is usually at 7pm. Please don’t arrive on the estate earlier than this.
TIMINGS: Timings for Inchyra shows follow a pretty set format. Doors open at 7pm with hot food available and the bar open. Show time 8pm. Unfortunately we are not able to advise on end times for live shows as these will vary accordingly to the artist. However, if there is support the times will be approximately 8.00pm support act, 9pm headline act, with a finish at approximately 10.30pm, but this may run over depending on encores etc. Shows without a support act are likely to finish earlier. The bar is usually open until 11pm.
SEATING FORMATS: Seating for all shows at Inchyra is unreserved. We will tell you at the top of each show listing what style of show it is. Here's a description of what to expect for each style of seating:
Cabaret Seating: jazz club style seating at small round tables with chairs, together with some bench seating for larger cabaret-style shows. Chairs are padded, benches are not. You are advised to arrive early to grab the best seats.
Theatre Seating: chairs laid out in rows facing the stage and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please be advised that due to the construction of the barn, seats in some places will have a supporting beam in their view, so again arrive early to grab the best seats.
Standing: there is very limited seating available at these shows.
DISABLED ACCESS: If you require disabled access or seating for any of our shows, including standing, please contact us on 01738 860066 and we will do our best to arrange this for you. Please be advised that disabled seating at standing shows requires the construction of a ramp and raised stand so please contact us well in advance. Priority will be given to wheelchair users. We cannot guarantee disabled seating if we are not notified in advance of the show. There are disabled parking bays close to the venue, where again, wheelchair users will be given priority.
FOOD: for most shows at Inchyra there is hot food available (usually street style food) and we will detail this in the show information at the top of the page. Food is served from doors opening time.
BAR: Unless otherwise specified there is a licenced bar available at all shows.
UNDER 18s: we are all in favour of introducing children and young people to live music at an early age, however, our experience is that below a certain age the vast majority of children find big loud shows too much which is not great for them or for the rest of the audience. We will give a minimum age which in our experience is suitable for each show. Please do not buy tickets for children below the stated age as we will not be able to give them access.
