Alan Barnes, Bryan Carter, Dana Dixon, Freddie King, John Burgess, John McLaughlin, King Louis, Laura Macdonald, Lucky Peterson and Willie « The Touch » Hayes are some of the bigshots to play this summer in Edinburgh for one of the most important jazz and blues manifestations in Europe.
The very rich programme of this edition is spread across 9 venues, and offers every possible mood and acoustics, from the sumptuous 1915-built auditorium of the Festival Theatre Main Stage, to the intimate Studio, 22 Potterrow, as well as the 140-seats Jazz Bar or the cabaret-styled Heriot's Rugby Club.
