Jools Holland to Headline Brecon Jazz Festival
Date Posted: 27/02/13
One of the UK's biggest celebrations of jazz music will be headlined by Jools Holland this year, it has been announced.
The Brecon Jazz Festival takes place in the small Welsh town of Brecon between August 9th and 12th and will also host performances from the likes of Acker Bilk, Courtney Pine, Django Bates and Grammy Award winning R&B star Mavis Staples, reports the BBC.
Pablo Janczur, director of Cardiff-based Orchard media group which is running the festival for a second year running, said this year's event will be the biggest yet.
"We've upped the number of concerts by a third, maintained the quality of the line-up with something for most jazz tastes, and are looking to build on the success of last year," he told the news provider.
Brecon is located around an hour's drive from Cardiff, meaning the jazz festival could be the perfect day out for those on city breaks in the Welsh capital this summer.
