And All That Jazz

Standard

One of Edinburgh’s 12 fabulous festivals kicks off today and we’re tapping our toes and swinging our hips in anticipation of another musical extravaganza as we say hello again to the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival.

Davina & The Vagabonds, Gramophone Jass Band Vintage Orchestra and Molly Duncan and Roger Bal are already sell outs but you can email the lovely folks at the Jazz Festival for waitlists and updates.

Fear not!  There’s still loads to see and do during this funky festival!

How about….

Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchaster at Festival Theatre, joined by special guest Spice Girl Melanie C for an evening of boogie-woogie and r’n’b

Have breakfast on the Royal Mile then head for Tron Kirk at 10.30am on Saturday to spend the morning with the Portobello High School Jazz Musicians

… or mosey on down to the Jazz Bar for a legendary late night with the Festival’s Late Night Jam Sessions

 

Have a great time whatever you decide to see and do this festival – we’d love to hear your top recomendations and fun festival experiences.
