Announcing a Fest Jazz Fiesta of Talent: 24/25/26 July 2020

2020

“Shake’Em Up Jazz Band’s” brilliant young clarinetist Chloe Feoranzo joined Good Time Jazz for “Bogalusa Strut”.
Led by Fest Jazz Organiser Trevor Stent (above left on clarinet), “Good Time Jazz” features six superb musicians, two English and four French.
Formed in Brittany in 2002 the band combines simplicity, elegance, swing and panache, appealing to young fans as well as to greying jazz aficionados. They play a refreshing and contagious mix of jazz and swing from the 1930s and 40s.

    And jazz folks should aim to get on down there this year, as, even though every past festival there has been top notch, the line-up this July could be best ever. The cost of entry, including the Thursday evening jam session in the pub, is half the price of a typical 4 day festival in the UK. And, using the sponsor special channel crossing by Brittany Ferries, is a huge saving, and their boarding pass qualifies for a jazz ticket discount ! Interesting venue area makes for a nice little weekend break. Norm888

    Thanks, Norman. The bands at Fest Jazz this year have some of the best young talent in Europe and the organising team are really developing the infrastructure of the festival after last year’s success (we even got complimented on the state of the toilets!). The fringe festival in the village is also being developed. Ticket sales are 80% up on last year, including loads of friends from the UK , so (fingers crossed! all is set for a bumper edition this year. Trevor Stent
