This year’s line-up is one of the most diverse and exciting yet, with an eclectic program encompassing everything from traditional New Orleans jazz, swing bands, jazz orchestras, funk, and blues to solo jazz piano through to contemporary, Gypsy and French jazz. There’s something for every music lover across the weekend.
