Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues

Head back laugh stripe
Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival returns for a 4th year with another something-for-everyone line-up of artists set over 3 days in the most beautiful of surroundings. Set in the grounds of an historic Elizabethan hall, the festival is organised by its sax-playing owner Simon Cunliffe-Lister and jazz singer Saffron Byass.

“Though unequalled in England for its unspoilt beauty, the rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds is not renowned as a hotbed of jazz. All that changed the weekend before last when a corner of the Wolds became Coolsville. Burton Agnes, an Elizabethan Hall near Bridlington, held a jazz festival on its manicured lawns... This is the only jazz event I know where your arrival is delayed by ducks crossing the road and performers are joined onstage by flitting bats... Possibly the most enjoyable jazz concert I've ever attended.”
Christopher Hirst, The Independent

Dennis Rollins
Saturday evening’s line up offers the award-winning British jazz star and his new acoustic, straight-ahead outfit Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio headlining. Whilst obviously influenced by jazz and swing, Velocity Trio also incorporates a progressive, contemporary edge to its sound. With a small element of Dennis' trademark electronic stage craft (think Joshua Redman's Elastic project), Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio also features Ross Stanley on organ and young Portuguese drummer Pedro Segundo.

Little Axe is the return to the blues that Skip grew up with and learned from his father.

With 11 bands and solo artists over three days, and performances in the Elizabethan Hall and its beautiful grounds, you can experience the diverse range of laid-back entertainment that inspired the Independent to write that the 2007 Festival was ‘Possibly the most enjoyable jazz concert I've ever attended’ .

The large stage on the Main Lawn in the Hall's award-winning grounds is where you’ll see the Festival’s main acts. With rolling fields behind the stage and pristine woodland to the side, you couldn’t ask for a more stunning setting. Inside the Hall, intimate acoustic performances mix with original Elizabethan carvings and French Impressionist art to create an inimitable festival experience. Festival-goers are invited to picnic in the grounds whilst enjoying the music, and a campsite in the field adjacent to the Hall offers panoramic views of the Yorkshire Wolds, and there are shower facilities for those wishing to pitch a tent for a night or the whole weekend. Festival tickets also entitle festivalgoers entry to the Hall and its beautiful gardens, and award-winning local produce is on sale throughout the three-day festival, including the famous Wold Top beer.

‘Burton Agnes Hall hosts a year-round programme of events, including the Gardeners' Fair in June, Michaelmas Fair in October and our Christmas, Snowdrop and Easter Egg Openings; the Jazz and Blues Festival is a summer celebration of great music in keeping with these events’ says Simon. ‘We have a varied line-up of over 11 bands and solo artists; our hope is that people will find the well-chosen music on offer particularly enjoyable in this beautiful setting’.

Last year, families flocked to the Burton Agnes Jazz Festival for the safe, easy-going vibe. Of particular interest to children, is a Children’s Corner with play area; 15 acres of magical gardens to explore including a walled garden with maze, jungle garden and giant games; and a woodland walk with forest creatures to find. Face painters and a children’s entertainer will also be on hand during the weekend to keep the children amused whilst you enjoy some of the finest Jazz and Blues music in the most beautiful and tranquil of surroundings.

“Burton Agnes Hall ranks among the finest, and best presented, houses in England. It is the perfect English house, embodying the climax of the final great age of domestic architecture.”
Simon Jenkins, England's Thousand Best Houses
