Keswick Jazz Festival image

Fabulous international guests and top UK talent in this large and warm-hearted gathering of people who all love to listen and dance to the great music that the Keswick Jazz Festival is renowned for.

Over 90 inspiring performance in this four day feast of jazz, with a further three days of concerts in Theatre By The Lake preceding the main festival.

Music from days of jazz when it began - Jelly Roll Morton and Kid Ory, and from the glory days of traditional jazz in the UK - Midnight Follies, Chris Barber, Ken Colyer, to the fat and hip-swinging music of the New Olreans brass bands and Cajun style bands, also the jumping sounds of the jive bands, intimate gipsy jazz, powerful and inspiring vocalists, some of the finest stride pianists you'll hear in the UK... the list goes on.

A dance floor will be laid in one venue where the bands will play for dancing, and dance tutors will run classes in the morning for beginners and intermediates.

There will also be interesting jazz talks, jam sessions, guest sessions, a parade though the town, jazz services, music in local pubs and cafes as well as concerts in large and small venues in and around the town.

All set in the beautiful surroundings of Keswick, in the heart of the Lake District.
