Scarborough Jazz Festival 2006

What an impact this event has had on the jazz

world! In its first three years it has enjoyed

increasing national acclaim. Audiences and

performers have acknowledged the consistently

high quality of the artists and find the variety and

range of the programme refreshing. And, of

course, the physical setting gives the festival an

added appeal. It is staged in the Grand Hall of the

impressive Victorian Spa Complex which looks out

across the sand and sea towards imposing cliffs and

Scarborough Castle.

SJF always tries to put on a fresh and balanced

programme and unashamedly relies heavily on the

plethora of outstanding British musicians - the

legendary Georgie Fame is one of the highlights of

this year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival. As before it

will provide high quality entertainment, contrast,

variety, accessibility, innovation – and fun.

There will be some great vocalists:-

Georgie Fame

Tina May

At our last festival, singer Ian Shaw

Pianist Gareth Williams

Some great bands will appear:-

Bobby Wellins

Dylan Howe’s

Phil Alexander’s

Virtuoso guitarist Pete Oxley’s ‘Curious


Gareth Lockrane

Saxophonist Andy Panayi’s

By contrast there will some powerful and

earthy blues from the prestigious seven-piece band

‘Blue Harlem

Add the incomparable compere Alan Barnes

With two specially selected Jazz Yorkshire Showcase

Bands to complete the programme - the Big Band


The festival is promoted by Scarborough Borough

Council and the programme organiser is Mike Gordon
