Summer concerts for Woody Allen

WOODY ALLEN: Accompanied by the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz band, he plays in Bilbao, Barcelona and Madrid.

WOODY ALLEN visits Spain for three concerts in his role as a jazz clarinetist, not film director, next June.

Accompanied by the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz band, he plays in Bilbao on June 16, in Barcelona on June 18 and Madrid on June 20.

According to advance publicity, Allen’s concerts will follow their usual improvised formula without a playlist although he and the band will play 20th century classics associated with Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechert, Johnny Dodds and George Lewis.


Allen, who was last in Spain in 2014 when he played at Barcelona’s Liceu theatre, has played with the New Orleans Jazz Band for the last 36 years.

This latest visit coincides with Allen’s fall from grace owing to after the MeToo movement resuscitated old accusations from his ex-wife Mia Farrow who insisted during their divorce proceedings that he had abused Dylan Farrow, one of their adopted daughters.

The courts dismissed the claims in 1993 and Allen has maintained in interviews that he supports MeToo and considers that he should be the movement’s “poster boy.”

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
