Hull Jazz Festival

24 to 26 July

The Hull Jazz Festival Summer Edition 2014 will open on Thursday 24 July with Matthew Smith's Eclectic4 Acoustic, with a unique sound encompassing jazz, soul, pop, blues and world music.

The Festival continues on Friday 25 July with the glamour, swing and wonderful close harmony singing of The Honeybirds, bringing some of the fantastic music of the swing boogie era to life. Friday night concludes with Django à la Creole, an amazing fusion of Gypsy swing, creole and blues featuring Evan Christopher on clarinet and Don Vappie of the Creole Jazz Serenaders on banjo and violin.

Saturday 26 July kicks off with two of the country's best known and most loved guitarists, Mike Walker and Stuart McCallum, followed by Jay Phelps and Soweto Kinch Quartet, playing tunes from their latest projects: Projections of Miles - 40 Years of Miles Davis and The Legend of Mike Smith. Saturday night wraps up with the hit of Freedom Festival 2013, Last Train to Skaville, playing high energy ska hits from the Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster, Madness, The Specials and much more.

Each night will also feature fantastic local artists performing in the foyer on the Giant Steps stage, with Kingstown Blues Band on Thursday 24th and Kingston Swing on Friday 25th.
