AberJazz Fishguard Jazz 'n' Blues Festival

Thursday 24 Aug 2017 - Monday 28 Aug 2017


Once again this year there’s a fantastic line up which is a diverse blend of jazz, blues and everything in between. For example if you like a bit of Dixieland music mixed with a bit of R&B then don’t miss the legendary frontman from Manfred Mann, Paul Jones with Digby Fairweather’s Half Dozen; Alternatively, for a bit of nostalgia, you will be surprised how many songs you know, The Chris Ingham Quartet featuring the music of Hoagy Carmichael will delight; For a bit of zany comedy you must see Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band but they are not just fooling, these guys are really brilliant jazz musicians mixing Bonzo Dog, Spike Jones and Pythonesque humour.

Elsewhere on the programme find The Red Stripe Band playing in the Bay Hotel, Goodwick, which should allow plenty of room for dancing. All of this plus a full programme of events in Ffwrn with too many acts to mention here, the usual quality events in our intimate jazz cafe, Peppers. TS Skirmisher and The Yacht Club as well as many of the pubs in the twin towns and slightly further afield.

Expect a party atmosphere as the town comes to life with live music in the pubs, busking in the streets. This is carnival weekend in Fishguard and Aberjazz keeps it going for five days.
