The Presbytery of Derry and Donegal and Contemporary Christianity (NI) bring a unique one-night-only event to the Waterside Theatre as part of the City of Culture programme for 2013.  Heaven in a Nightclub is a jazz concert interspersed with historical information about the spiritual roots of jazz, which features Bill Edgar, Ruth Naomi Floyd and Randy Pendleton from Philadelphia, at the start of their UK tour. The audience will have the opportunity to hear examples of ragtime, blues, spirituals, funeral bands and others. Dr Bill Edgar is a professor at Westminister Theological Seminary, Philadelphia.  His approach is that "jazz ought to entertain" but its background is deeply rooted in the history and social and spiritual experiences of African -American people who were reared in slavery yet nurtured on the Gospel message in every aspect of life.
