Final Call For Fest Jazz 2016 – The Young at Heart and Inspirational Festival



Fest Jazz, the young at heart and inspirational festival in Châteauneuf-du-Faou, Brittany, stars Joan Chamorro and the Sant Andreu Jazz Band in the 2016 edition!!!  It’s going to be wonderful to see those 30 talented young musicians again.  

“They rarely play as a band outside Barcelona and we are very proud that they are so keen to come to Fest Jazz this year” says festival director Trevor Stent. “They will be playing in small groups during the weekend and then as a Big Band on the Sunday evening. It will be fantastic!

“For UK jazz fans there’ still time to book. It means a short hop across the Channel and a not to be missed opportunity to see this extraordinary group of young talents, including trumpet star Andrea Motis.  Brittany Ferries is again offering a promotional package for Fest Jazz and I hope as many British people as possible will join in the fun with us.”

The enthusiasm of Peter Butler is inspirational and infectious and has certainly done much to boost the reputation of Fest Jazz  beyond the boundaries of Brittany.  Long may the site continue and flourish!” (Trevor Stent)
