Day 2 of the Lancaster Jazz Festival, with great performaces from Engawa and Richard Jones Trio at Lancaster Priory, and school bands from across Lancaster at Kanteena.
Some feedback from our audience at Lancaster Priory:
“Really loved the piano & drum combination. It was refreshing and felt really new and exciting!”
“Absolutely stupendous music, got me back in touch with everything that first attracted me to jazz.”
And from the audience at Kanteena:
“Tremendous atmosphere and such youthful exuberance and courage from the young performers.”
“The quality of the young musicians was phenomenal and it was reasonably priced for such talent!”
You can catch Johny Hunter and Seth Bennet from the Richard Jones Trio on Saturday in the Storey in the Johnny Hunter Quartet with Laura Cole. Johnny Hunter is also part of the John Pope Quintet – catch them on Sunday at the Lancaster Library.
