Celebrating 50 years of Get Carter
Acclaimed pianist and Hammond player Wendy Kirkland presents fresh arrangements of Roy Budd’s iconic score for the Ted Lewis inspired Get Carter, probably the most influential gangster movie ever made. This world premiere has been commissioned by the Ted Lewis Society to mark the film’s 50th anniversary. Ted attended Hull School of Art and lived in Barton-upon-Humber.
The ever-versatile Wendy Kirkland leads her trio of regular collaborators Pat Sprakes (guitar) and Steve Wyndham (drums) with jazz funk trombonist Dennis Rollins MBE as special guest.
The performance will be interspersed with dialogue from Get Carter, read by Monty Martin, Ted Lewis Society founder.
