Here's your chance to win a pair of tickets to the Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival.
Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival returns for a 4th year with another something-for-everyone line-up of artists set over 3 days in the most beautiful of surroundings. Set in the grounds of an historic Elizabethan hall, the festival is organised by its sax-playing owner Simon Cunliffe-Lister and jazz singer Saffron Byass.
Friday evening sees performances from 5 pieces of Silver, a hot quintet dedicated to the 1960's Blue Note era of the great Horace Silver led by the Brazilian born pianist Zezo Olympio, a graduate of the Berklee Music College, along with Bass Man Family, a twelve strong collective fuse elements of jazz, soul, RnB, funk & pop.
Saturday evening’s line up offers the award-winning British jazz star and his new acoustic, straight-ahead outfit Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio headlining. Also performing on Saturday are Carlos Olmos & Matt Smith, Anita Wardell, Little Axe and Al Woods Big Band.
Sunday is completed with Jazz Vocalist of the Year three times running, the sensational Clare Teal as she brings her unique blend of warm humour and great music to the stage, backed by the finest jazz musicians in the land. The Radio 2 personality and columnist has cut a reputation as one of the most talented performers to emerge in recent years. With sparkling arrangements and a glorious mix of old classics and fabulous originals, Clare’s show certainly swings and is not one to be missed.
Rob Law Trio, the award winning pianist Robert Mitchell and Cuban violinist Omar Puente who come together to create a spellbinding and truly remarkable talent and organisers Saffron and Simon Cunliffe-Lister play out their festival.
