The tenth Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival takes place this summer in the award winning grounds and Great Hall of the magnificent Elizabethan stately home that is Burton Agnes Hall...Small Visitor Attraction award winner, White Rose Awards 2015, surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and home of the Cunliffe-Lister family for more than four hundred years.

A varied line up of funk, traditional jazz, blues, dreamy vocals and everything in between will grace the courtyards and stages. Festival goers will be mesmerized with its diverse and premium bill, which brings together jazz greats and international legends alongside cutting edge and new artists.
A campsite in the field adjacent to the Hall offers welcome hot showers and panoramic views of the Yorkshire Wolds for those wishing to pitch a tent for a night or the whole weekend.
With its safe and easygoing vibe, there is plenty on offer for children including a Children’s Corner with play area, 15 acres of magical gardens to explore including a walled garden with maze, jungle garden and giant games, and a woodland walk with sculpted forest creatures to find.

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.
