Ipswich Jazz Festival

A stunning line-up of jazz music has been announced for the fourth Ipswich Jazz Festival to be held over the weekend of 21st- 23rd June 2019. And thanks to funding by Ipswich Borough Council, Arts Council England and Attwells Solicitors, some events are free, there are concessionary tickets at just £1 for people on low income benefits or who are full time students and even for those who pay, tickets are all priced at a reasonable £15. Most events take place at St Peter’s by the Waterfront Arts Centre in Ipswich.

Kicking off with a party, the Brass Funkeys bring their lively mix of funk, gypsy jazz and marching music on the evening of Friday 21st June.

The afternoon of Saturday 22nd June sees a free family jazz show by singer Becki Biggins for primary school age children and their families and a performance by Cliff Lane Primary School’s orchestra. That evening, the club-style Stars at St Peter’s features Suffolk’s international singer Polly Gibbons, top saxophonist Alan Barnes and young-up-and coming jazz violinist Ben Holder along with acclaimed trumpet player Neil Yates, ably supported by the local Chris Ingham Trio.

On Sunday 23rd June at 2pm, there’s a free Brazilian jazz concert by Samba Azul at St Peter’s followed by an evening gig by dark jazz trio Mammal Hands who have been hard at work touring internationally.
