The Chris Ingram Quartet will perform “Dudley – The Jazz of Dudley Moore” at Ropsley Village Hall on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.

Dudley Moore’s fame as a comedic actor and Hollywood movie star, as well as his complex and highly conflicted life story, overshadowed his gift as a witty and imaginative jazzman and songwriter.

The Chris Ingham Quartet revisits Dud’s music from the 1960s when he was a television star.
