The UK’s most popular celebration of traditional and mainstream jazz is back for another year, bringing the infectious New Orleans Mardi Gras party spirit to Cumbria. Upbeat and entertaining bands will play a whole range of jazz styles from moody blues and soulful gospel, to rousing boogie, spirited swing and hot gypsy jazz. There are 90 events taking place across four packed day, in venues including the ever-popular Theatre Marquee with a stunning view across Derwentwater. The free parade will also take place, with a troupe of musicians and dancers processing down to the beautiful lakeshore. Many favourites from previous years are returning, including amazing pianists Jeff Barnhart and Keith Nichols, trumpeter Enrico Tomasso, saxophonist John Hallam and guitarist Remi Harris. They’ll be joined by the funky Brass Volcanoes, the Basin Street Brawlers, the cajun Candid Jug Orange Band, Kid Ory style trombone from Mike Owen and many more. Dance group G.I. Jive will once again be running workshops, and the programme of talks by popular musicians also returns.
