The “Jazz in the Gallery” events have kicked off at the Lady in Red Gallery in Lagoa. These new music events are an opportunity to celebrate local musicians, taking place twice a month throughout the coming summer months with hopes of carrying on through to October.
The next Jazz in the Gallery event will take place on the July 29 at 6pm until 8pm. The concert brings a varied repertoire of live soul, jazz, blues and covers from Raphael Alves which is set beautifully at the Lady in Red’s picturesque Bougainvillea terrace.
Daniel Medeira confirmed that there is a new tapas menu available for guests which includes a three cheese and chorizo platter with ham, salami, olives, honey, homemade bread as well as regional sweets. The Mediterranean tapas is 15 euros for two people and 25 euros for four people. There is also a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks which includes craft beers, gins, Quinta dos Capinhas wines, soft drinks and coffees.
So, sit back and enjoy charming music from local musicians whilst enjoying a well-deserved drink and delicious tapas.
Vasco Lamberti expressed that they may be able to host Fado and other genres of music in the future. The gallery wants to support local musicians, so if you are jazz or blues musician and would like to perform at their Jazz in the Gallery evenings, please get in touch with the Lady in Red gallery (see contact details below).
The gallery will be open after hours, so during the event, to allow visitors to view the current exhibitions, “EUFEMISMO POLICROMO” by artist Ana Malta (@num.para on Instagram).
All the gallery’s art can be purchased from their website. Similarly, don’t forget to check out their shop where you can find unique pieces made by local artisans. Again, the shop will be open during the jazz events.
The event on July 29 is free and there is ample parking but reservations are required so please do book as there is limited seating of 40 people.
