Teignmouth Jazz and Blues Festival

Teignmouth's annual Jazz and Blues Festival opens in Teignmouth, Devon this month.

Zoe Schwarz and Rob KoralFrom Friday 16th to Sunday 18th November the West Country seaside town becomes a hub for new and returning faces and sounds on the jazz scene.

The festival is fast becoming an attraction for jazz musicians, young and old. This year's three-day fest includes the likes of guitar/vocal duo Zoe Schwarz and Rob Koral, the Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra, and gypsy swing band Gadjo Guitares.

The pairing of Zoe Schwarz and Rob Koral (pictured) promises to be a highlight of the festival, with the intimate guitar/vocal setting inspired by the duets of Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald. Ms Schwarz's vocals have been described as "all that is good from Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday" (C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz).
