Upton Jazz Festival
Last weekend in June 2019
A four day celebration of the Jazz, Swing and Blues music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s; music which grew out of the streets and clubs of New Orleans, New York, Chicago and Kansas City.
Festival 33 is over and has become a lovely memory. The sun shone all weekend. We felt welcome Back in Town. And of course there was the music – a successful Fringe with opera rock ’n roll and blues and not a little fine jazz. Maintaining our traditions with the Church Service and Parade too. And last but far from least, the main event…thanks to Rachel for festival favourites Mama Shakers, for the crowd pulling Roadkill, the effervescent Jazz Connection, the superb 10th year of Best of Young Jazz and many many others. Please let us know your festival highlights. Thank you all for playing, coming along, singing, dancing, applauding, enjoying and helping. See you in June 2019.
