Brecon Jazz Festival 2011
The Brecon Jazz Festival 2011 got off to a flying start with a vibrant Friday evening programme led by Clare Teal, Matthew Herbert, The Core, Fringe Magnetic and Alice Russell.
Held on an annual basis in the rural surroundings of Brecon, in south Powys, Mid Wales. It plays host to a range of jazz musicians who travel from across the world to take part and to many visiting tourists who are attracted by the music, the social scene and the other leisure opportunities on offer in and around the Brecon Beacons.
The Festival was organized by Jed Williams, owner of The Four Bars Inn in 1983 and first staged in 1984 and on a budget of £100. It was a local initiative by the people of Brecon to increase the “ARTS” for this small Welsh Market Town. Since June 2009 it is now produced by the Hay Festival and funded by the Arts Council of Wales. To book tickets for the festival, which has a full programme on Saturday 13th August and Sunday 14th August, see the Hay Festival website.
