Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)


The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".


In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.


As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Lancaster Jazz Festival Cancelled

We are posting to let you know that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Lancaster Jazz Festival due to take place in September.

It seems increasingly unlikely that there will be any open public performances by September and all our venues are correctly not taking any bookings for then. In addition our main funder, Arts Council England, have redirected the grants we would have been supported by, which is understandable in these unprecedented times.

If you want to keep up with all your favourite artists from previous year's festivals - follow us on: 
TwitterInstagram and Facebook where we'll be sharing links to new music to stream or download.
The team are continuing to work hard to develop and support the festival behind the scenes and we will be back stronger than ever in 2021.
Until then, take care, 
Dave, Lucy, Sophy, Fergus and Iona
