Keswick Jazz FestivalKeswick, Keswick
Thu, May 8th - Sun, May 11th All Day
Now in its 23rd year, the Jennings Keswick Jazz Festival is firmly established as Britain’s foremost celebration of traditional and mainstream jazz. 2014 promises to be a vintage year, with international guests including Europe’s legendary Hot Antic Jazz Band and the Netherlands’ storming young Oriental Jazz Band. Returning from New Orleans by overwhelming demand are top trumpeter Duke Heitger and Harry Connick Junior’s star trombonist Lucien Barbarin. Other favourites joining us from the USA will be breathtaking pianist Jeff Barnhart, trombone supremo Jim Fryer and dazzling vocalist Joan Viskant, while we also welcome back world-class reedsman Matthias Seuffert from Germany.
As always, the Festival will also feature a galaxy of UK jazz talent including Alan Barnes, Amy Roberts, Ben Cummings, Ben Holder, Craig Milverton, Enrico Tomasso, George Huxley, Jamie Brownfield, John Hallam, Julian Marc Stringle, Keith Nichols, Nicola Farnon, Spats Langham and Tom Kincaid – a four-day feast of jazz! – See more at: http://www.theatrebythelake.com/production/11038#sthash.T6pRjxtz.dpuf
