Cuth’s Big Band

President: Catriona Shaw


Cuth’s Big Band prides itself in being a friendly and welcoming band, that performs to high standards both musically, and in our costumes for what can only be described as epic socials. The band has gone from strength to strength since its formation in 2007 and last year saw us play many gigs around Durham, most notably at Cuth’s Feast and Music Durham Christmas Ball. Our repertoire includes jazz standards, funk, swing, and vocal numbers. A highlight of our year is our annual tour, and previous years have taken us to Liverpool, Edinburgh and York, where we have played with top university jazz bands.

The members of the band are mainly, but not exclusively, from St. Cuthbert’s Society and if you are interested in joining please contact Cat (this year’s president) for more info, either through the website, or by using the email address provided above.
