Dinosaur 16 September

From Matt Robinson

country and have put together, what we really believe is, the most exciting
collection of emerging jazz musicians working in the UK at the moment. On
top of that, and thanks to pioneering support from Help Musicians UK, and
with guidance from our previous artists, audiences, members and partners,
we are now working with every artist in this programme over the long term.
In addition to an amazing performance at the festival, will be working with
them to produce: new audio and video recordings, brand new artistic works,
new collaborations between musicians and a whole bunch of other things
that are only ideas at the moment.

Lancaster Jazz Festival 2017 will be a hive of activity, with not only
the packed programme of performances listed in this programme but a
whole host of additional events, behind the scenes moments, and artist
development opportunities. Keep an eye on for the very

So, whether you join us for cups of tea sitting in deckchairs on Sunday
afternoon in Sun Square, electric jazz rock in the Lancaster Brewery, or at

Headline Artist 2017: Dinosaur
Dinosaur is one of the most vital and creative new ensembles in Europe today. Led by trumpeter and composer Laura Jurd, Dinosaur (BBC New Generation Artist 2015 - 2107), featuring star keyboardist Elliot Galvin and the exciting young rhythm section of Conor Chaplin and Corrie Dick, they are described by All About Jazz as “a new British Jazz supergroup”. They bring together a remarkable fusion of thoughtful compositions, skilful musicianship and visceral energy, producing music that is both formidable and utterly compelling.
