Update on Great North Big Band Jazz Festival

This year's Great North Big Band Festival will take place at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St. Peter's, Sunderland (See poster). Friday evening's opening concert should be very interesting with Paul Jones and Mick Donnelly on Saxes with Adrian Tilbrook, Neil Harland and Colin Haikney in the rhythm section. This will be followed by the University of Warwick Big Band and the Festival Big Band which is made up of people who have attended the regular workshops at the university.
On Saturday we hope to have 17 big bands playing for 12 hours. The senior bands include bands from the universities of Cardiff, Warwick, Lancaster, Sheffield, Huddersfield and last years winners, Durham. The Customs House Big Band, Durham Alumni and the Doncaster Youth Jazz Orchestra will also be taking part.
The Youth section will have 8 bands.
Festival information will be on the Sunderland University Big Band website www.sunderlanduniversitybigband.co.uk
