Welcome to Southport Jazz festival 2-5 February

Clare Teal 3 Feb 
From Neil Hughes

I'm delighted to introduce our 13th jazz on a winter’s weekend in Southport, but for me it has been a pleasure to programme the festival for my first time. Under the watchful eye of Geoff Matthews I have incorporated the flavours that Southport has become well known for; international artists, challenging and contempory jazz, some big band music and of course the best in British with a lovely North West smattering.

This year the international theme features Trichotomy (Australia), Seamus Blake Trio (New York) And The Wonderful Fabien Mary Quartet (Paris). We have the return of the Ben Cox Band playing their sweet original tunes from the second album Round And Round, And more original Jazz too from The Train & The River (Jeremy Price, Andy Panayi And Jez Franks) and Jam Experiment who are writing some beautiful music. This listings for the weekend are
