This is Rob, Festival Reporter, writing on the eve of the Lancaster Jazz Festival. My job over the next few days will be to attempt to document as much as I can of the jam-packed weekend, as well as interviewing some of the artists and hosting a Q&A session with artist in residence Seth Bennett and Leo Geyer. I'll also be curating a Festival Hub in the beer garden of the Sun Hotel. This will be an area in which you can have a drink and relax, as well as purchase CDs and the like from artists.
I'll be around all weekend (running about with camera in hand) so feel free to come and say hello. The artists I am most looking forward to across the festival are A Dread Supreme, artist in residence Seth Bennett and Youth Jazz Commission, Calum Macleod, as well as headliners Empirical feat. Julian Siegel. There's also a chance I'll be making an appearance on guitar with the LRGS Big Band on Friday evening...
See you at the festival!
