Fingers crossed the weather man will provide a sunny day to accompany the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival's free jazz. Free here means no cost - the jazz itself is more old-school jazz - Dixie and swing. Music you can dance to.

The Ross Bandstand not only has the dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, but a dance floor, where people of all ages take the opportunity to swing.

This year's line-up includes:

  • compere, Todd Gordon
  • Edinburgh Schools Jazz Orchestra
  • No Name Horses
  • Forth Valley
    Chorus
  • Mike Hart's Society Syncopators
  • Tricia Boutte
  • The Criterion
    New Orleans Parade Band
  • The Squadronaires (an RAF big band)
