10th Anniversary Line up announced for this year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival

Several international artists have been announced as part of line-up for the Tenth Scarborough Jazz Festival.
Highlights of the three-day festival include a performance from Martin Taylor and Alan Barnes, who will share the stage together for the first time ever.
Quartets fronted by Tim Garland and Quentin Collins will also perform and 2008 headliner Claire Martin returns with her sextet.
There will also be a performance from the very popular Darius Brubeck Quartet, as well as the return of the crowd-pleasing National Youth Jazz Orchestra.
In total, 16 acts have been announced so far for the event, which takes place between September 28 and September 30 at The Spa in Scarborough, and festival director Mike Gordon could not be happier with the lineup.
“I’m very, very happy about how it’s turned out.  “We have some really great stuff on it this year.”
Mr Gordon is especially thrilled to have the National Youth Jazz Orchestra back after a storming set at the festival in 2011.
He added: “To be honest, I don’t usually like repeating bands year after year, but they change their line-up every single year. “They are always very popular.”
The festival, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, has grown in popularity year after year.
Recently, it was named by The Guardian as one of the top five jazz festivals in the country, beating off events held in several major cities.
Mr Gordon, believes the event has helped establish Scarborough as one of the leading jazz destinations in the country.
“Jazz is actually having difficulty at the moment, but the local scene is doing very well.“People can look at the Scarborough line-up, and although they might not like everything they see, they know it’s still going to be good quality. They trust the programme. They see Scarborough as a stamp of quality.”
Early bird weekend tickets for the event are now on sale priced at £65 and will be available until Saturday July 1 Spa Box Office on 01723 357869 or via http://www.scarboroughjazzfestival.co.uk.
To encourage younger people to attend the festival organisers have frozen Under 25s Weekend Ticket prices.
Day and Session Tickets are available from Saturday July 1.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
