The Big Easy vibe on sea­side streets

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - MUSIC -

The sounds of New Or­leans ar­rive in Kent this week­end. The eighth an­nual Mar­gate Jazz Fes­ti­val will take place in the town from Fri­day, June 21, to Sun­day, June 23, and for the first time, mu­sic will be per­formed on the pave­ments of the Old Town. Event founder David Moss­man, di­rec­tor of Lon­don’s renowned Vor­tex Jazz Club, be­lieves the new move will cre­ate a unique party at­mos­phere. He said: “Sun­day’s pro­gramme fea­tures an amaz­ing range of mu­sic – from au­then­tic Balkan and gypsy jazz to Brazil­ian bossa nova, to Ital­ian swing. The per­form­ers have played at the best jazz clubs and fes­ti­vals in the world but you won’t see them in a bet­ter lo­ca­tion than Mar­gate, and cer­tainly not for free.” The fes­ti­val has fea­tured a host of jazz stars in­clud­ing Cleo Laine, Johnny Dankworth, Nigel Kennedy, Court­ney Pine and Jamie Cul­lum.
