Hull Jazz Festival

24 to 26 July

The Hull Jazz Festival Winter Edition 2014 opens on Thursday 20 November with Gilad Atzmon Orient House Ensemble and the Sigamos String Quartet, presenting In Loving Memory of America: Charlie Parker with Strings. This promises to be a very special evening.

The Festival continues on Friday 21 November with Arun Ghosh, winner of the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Award for Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year, performing tracks from his acclaimed album South Asian Suite. Next up on the Friday evening, we have Tim Kliphuis and his trio, performing their incredible tribute to Stéphane Grappelli. In the foyer on the Giant Steps stage, our platform for local Hull talent, we're hosting a Giant Steps Jazz Jam featuring members of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, City of Hull Youth Jazz Orchestra and students from the University of Hull.

Saturday 22 November kicks off with a workshop with Tim Kliphuis and Nigel Clark offering a Beginner's Guide to Gypsy Jazz - this is limited to 25 people so advance booking is essential. We're delighted to be ending the festival with a very special performance with NYJO (National Youth Jazz Orchestra) with guest artist Soweto Kinch.  They'll be joined on stage by young local musicians from the City of Hull Youth Jazz Orchestra and the University of Hull.
