Lancaster Jazz Festival highlights

Empirical feat. Julian Siegel Sat 19th Sept

Matt Robinson writes: "This year we are taking another massive step towards one of the festival’s long term goals, which is to become a truly artist-led festival. We are aiming to create an artists’ playground, featuring exceptional music set in the beautiful surroundings of the historic city of Lancaster.

This is going to be the best LJF to date - and we’re more excited about this one than any we’ve made so far. We’ve programmed artists that we feel are doing something truly original and exciting, artists who will create beautiful new works, be open to collaborations and be breathtakingly stunning. We’re also supporting emerging artists like never before with help from our Artist in Residence for 2015, Seth Bennett, possibly the most original British double bassist in a generation. He’s not only going to be developing and showcasing his own extraordinary projects but has also been mentoring our Youth Jazz Commission, awarded to pedal harpist Calum Macleod, and will be working with our emerging artists throughout the festival.

If you haven’t been before, then a huge welcome ".
