First Performers of Scarborough Jazz Festival 2016 Revealed
With Earlybird tickets being snapped up in record numbers, Jazz Festival organisers have decided to reveal a little taster of what’s on offer this September.
A highlight will be, in the great tradition of big bands, the seventeen-piece ‘Abstract Truth Band’, led by Dave and Judith O’Higgins, whose recent CD received four stars from the Guardian’s John Fordham.
Alex Webb’s mixed-media show, ‘Charlie Parker on Dial’ starring Nathaniel Facey, Freddie Gavita and Vimala Rowe, who wowed the 2015 festival with her performance as part of Jazz @ Café Society, will deliver something very different.
We are delighted to have back the charismatic vocalist and pianist Liane Carroll and rising star saxophonist Trish Clowes teams up with the incomparable Gareth Williams on our Bosendorfer grand piano. So that’s for starters, there will be Much more to come!
The remainder of the line-up will be revealed in January.
The director of the Scarborough Jazz Festival Mike Gordon commented:
“With record sales and outstanding evaluations it’s going to be hard to beat the 2015 Scarborough Jazz Festival. But with next year’s programme almost completed and tickets selling really well I’m confident we have another exhilarating weekend coming up in 2016!”
The Scarborough Jazz Festival takes places at The Spa, Scarborough between 23-25 September 2016. Earlybird Weekend tickets are now on sale priced at £85 and are available by calling (01723) 821888 or visiting www.scarboroughjazzfestival.co.uk
