As in previous years, the Newport Jazz Weekend offers the very best of UK jazz. There are some new names, some familiar names and the very best of local talent both on the main bill and within the fringe events.
As always, a number of events at the Newport Jazz Weekend will be held at the Apollo, notably the prestigious opening and closing gigs: the international premiere of Nick Page’s Isle of Wight Suite on Thursday 2 June at 8.00pm, and the Liane Carroll Trio on Sunday 4 June at 8.15pm. Other events will also be held at the theatre as well as other venues across the Island. Check out www.newportjazzweekend.co.uk for more information.
