We’re back for 2022!
After a thoroughly enjoyable first festival, we’re delighted to be back for Leyburn Jazz Festival 2022!
We’ve got a fantastic line-up taking shape, with some great jazz artists joining us for the first time and a couple of favourites from last year returning due to popular demand!
We’ve listened closely to feedback from last year’s festival-goers and we’re really pleased with the way things are progressing. This year, all performances will be individually ticketed and will take place in venues in the centre of Leyburn.
We’re looking forward to welcoming these great artists to Leyburn…..
The Savannah Jazz Band
There is never a shortage of fun, excitement and raw good music whenever the Savannah Jazz Band takes the stage. The Savannah is one of the most popular UK bands around. With their talent for satisfying listeners and dancers alike they have built up a truly international reputation atmajor festivals in the UK and overseas.
The band’s driving and exciting New Orleans style attracts large audiences whenever they play. Their many fans follow them from festival to festival and turn out devotedly to see them at regular venues in the UK. This tremendous support is very much appreciated by the band.
Yorkshire Gyspy Swing Collective
A gypsy jazz supergroup with musicians from all around Yorkshire. Playing music inspired from legendary musicians Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, they present their own unique sound, offering a combination of Guitar, Violin, Bass, Clarinet and even a Laúd (Spanish Lute). Expect some classic standards, stunning ballads and some Latin inspired pieces.
These guys were a massive hit at last year’s festival and we’re so pleased they’re joining us again! An exciting 7-piece band based in Leeds, Alligator Gumbo is inspired by the sights and sounds of New Orleans jazz and blues. Performing extensively around the UK since 2011, the band continues to wow audiences far and wide with their good-natured mix of foot-stomping rhythms and toe-tapping tunes.
Edison Herbert Trio
After some wonderful solo and duo performances last year, we’s also thrilled to have the fantastic Edison Herbert join us again in Leyburn, this time with his very talented trio. Edison Herbert is a sensitive and melodic musician who plays the guitar from the heart. Not to be missed!
