Scotland’s only Big Band Festival returns in 2019! For the 7th year running we will be showcasing some of the West of Scotland’s best big bands, as part of the Glasgow Jazz Festival.
For the first time we have FIVE Big Bands participating: the Zig Zag Big Band, the Byres Road Big Band, the Berrie Big Band, the Strathclyde Youth Jazz Orchestra and the East Dunbartonshire Schools’ Jazz Orchestra shall all feature.
This year our hosts shall be one of Glasgow’s best loved live venues – The Old Fruitmarket.
From early big band swing to contemporary pieces, including premieres written and arranged by local Scottish composers.
