Only three days to go! Wow, this summer has flown by.
We’ve had some wonderful press coverage over the past couple of weeks, with articles in local papers, Matt and Dave’s interview on BBC Radio Lancashire, a feature in Jazzwise as well as a mention on BBC Radio 3 AND we were named as one of Ivan Hewett’s top 5 things to see this week in the Telegraph. Not bad going at all.
I can’t wait for the music to get under way because lets face it that’s why we all do this and I know the weekend is going to absolutely fly by. I’m particularly looking forward to watching Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio on Saturday night. I've always had a special degree of admiration for trombone players and there are few better than Dennis Rollins. I’m also really looking forward to the gig at Lancaster Brewery when we will get to see some of the potential jazz stars of the future as well as those that are already making waves such as Tom Green and his septet (yet another brilliant trombonist!).
There’s really so many great musicians at this year’s festival you’re bound to see top quality jazz music wherever you go. Here’s to an awesome and hopefully dry festival so we can see our Sun Square Stage in all it’s glory!
