Gateshead International Jazz Festival is back in April and will welcome some of the greatest jazz artists from around the globe at the three-day event. The UK’s biggest jazz festival held under one roof, fills four stages at Sage Gateshead from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 April 2018.
Headlining this year’s festival are Ruby Turner, Maceo Parker, Sun Ra Arkestra, Tony Allen's tribute to Art Blakey, Norma Winstone, Portico Quartet, The Chris Barber Band and Georgie Fame with The Guy Barker Big Band alongside many other jazz, funk and soul artists from across Europe and beyond.

It’s back, June 1st, 2nd and 3rd, Durham City’s new jazz festival returns for a second year! Last year’s inaugural DJazz long-weekend festival made an instant impact and the good news is the event will once again take place in many of Durham’s finest, and quirkiest, venues beginning on Friday 1 June, running through ’til late Sunday 3 June. The prospect of a ‘flaming June’ feast of jazz whets the appetite as the current cold snap appears to be coming to an end.
Confirmed acts so far include Robocobra Quartet (they’ve already played Durham’s Empty Shop and Hoochie Coochie in Newcastle), Sloth Racket (a familiar sound on Tyneside), the Zoë Gilby Duo (making a quick return to Durham following last month’s fine Empty Shop debut), Shatner’s Bassoon (coming soon to Newcastle’s Jazz Café), the all-female Leeds-based J Frisco, and the similarly all-female Break Out Brass Band (coming soon to Newcastle’s Jazz Co-op).
DJazz: The Durham City Jazz Festival is a collaboration between At the Root, Empty Shop and Durham University Jazz Society.
Early bird tickets are available now, visit www.emptyshop.org.Author: Steve CrockerPosted: March 6, 2018, 10:22 pm
