Ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor and pub landlord Denny Newman have decided to make their Christmas Jam at Diss an annual event.

Last year's concert proved so popular that they had to arrange an extra show for fans who could not get tickets. It also prompted calls from other musicians keen to get involved.

"The atmosphere surrounding the whole thing was amazing. Apart from selling out twice, the phone never stopped. Calls from old friends wanting to be part of the shows, even Mick Jagger's brother Chris called," said Mr Newman,

"It seems there are lots of musicians who want to get back to gigs where you can see and connect with the audience."
