26 – 29 March 2020

Welcome to our 8th edition of Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival! While the eagerly anticipated renovations at Colston Hall continue, we will be staging concerts at St George’s, Bristol Folk House, O2 Academy, Fiddlers, Colston Hall foyer and Bambalan where we hope you’ll find plenty to satisfy your jazz and blues tastes!

As always, we try our best to present as many different genres under the
jazz and blues umbrella as possible, featuring as many of Bristol and the
South West’s jazz and blues talent as we can squeeze on stage. Our policy
has always been to showcase the world class musicians we have living among
us and have them collaborate with our

visiting artists and there’s lots in
this year’s programme to fullfill
that aim.

On behalf of the whole team,
we wish you a wonderful
weekend of music and
we thank you for your
continued support.

Denny Ilett

Artistic Director
