City of Derry Jazz & Big Band Festival - The Extraordinaires


City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival

28 April – 01 May 2011 |

Do you love jazz, blues and big bandstyle swing? Then you’ll adore the 10th City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival – Northern Ireland’s glittering ode to a stunning musical era. Over 300 musicians will descend on the city to play five days of gigs in over 75 venues – featuring everything from classical jazz to rockabilly, jump jive to swing and every type of big band extravaganza in-between.

Last year saw Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones playing with his new band, The Rhythm Kings – as well as jazz supremo Mirenda Rosenberg, blues Cat Scratch Trio and our very own Derry Jazz Quartet.

It doesn’t get much better...
