Unfortunately I can't make it this year, but it's a great little festival: easy to get to, easy to find, easy to get around, easy to park - a big deal these days - and, once again, some great bands.
Last year saw a number of North East musicians and quite a lot of Gypsy Jazz, so the two come together this time in Emma Fisks HCDN, featuring several incredible musicians, known to anyone who follows North East Jazz. Also Zoe and Andy ditto.
In fact, I'm going to try to get down for something.
