Herts Jazz Festival 19-21 August

Dave Newton

The indefatigable Herts Jazz Club organisation is adding a jazz festival to the regular concerts it puts on every Sunday at Campus West in Welwyn Garden City.

Under the direction of Clark Tracey, the club has made a big impression on the local jazz community (see JJ letters pages), presenting the best of modern and mainstream British talent.

The first Herts Jazz Festival runs 19-21 August 2011 at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City and the lineup features Martin Taylor, Stan Tracey, Echoes of Ellington, Don Weller’s Big Band, Dave Newton (pictured), Trudy Kerr, Peter King and many more.

Clark says the 15 performances, together with masterclasses, will be “a dream come true for jazz lovers near and far”. The full lineup and booking info is available at Campus West or telephone 01707 357117.
