Edinburgh Jazz Festival's Jazz on a Summer's Day
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
- Mike Hart's Society Syncopators
- Tricia Boutte
- The Criterion
New Orleans Parade Band
- The Squadronaires (an RAF big band)
