We can’t wait to get this years festival underway – our Saturday line up takes from the absolute best of Northern Jazz.
👉🏽 ALICE GRACE & PAWEL JEDRZEJEWSKI
Renowned for their work across many North East settings, Alice and Pawel perform music from their latest release: A Timeless Place.
🎥 YouTube: Introducing JASMINE
Saxophone-led quintet from Leeds, performing music composed by saxophonist Jasmine Whalley. Performing an interesting blend of Jazz and Hip-Hop which creates a unique and current sound.
👉🏽 SWING MANOUCHE
🎥 YouTube: “Nuits Solitaire”
A hard swinging gypsy jazz outfit. Authentic originals are still very much a main ingredient but SM are as likely to take from modern gypsy players as well as Django.
👉🏽 SUE FERRIS QUARTET

Regular on the North East scene, Sue turns her quartet into a tribute to bari sax man Gerry Mulligan.
👉🏽 DENNIS ROLLINS VELOCITY TRIO
🎥 YouTube: Introducing Velocity Trio
A rare instrumentation of the trombone-led trio with Hammond and drums, makes it unique. Dennis leads the trio with his powerful and inventive trombone with which he creates all the moods from funky and groovy to very melodic and lyrical. He takes the risk and pushes the envelope with his creative and edgy approach to music.
