Welcome to the first of what may become an annual event.
The aim is to provide opportunites for local musicians in the field of jazz, blues and jazz-related music to bring their gifts to music lovers in Budleigh Salterton and district.
Holding the events in a number of venues helps promote the feeling of a town-wide festival – indeed in future we may spread further afield – if that’s what people would like.
We aim, too, to keep ticket prices to a reasonable and affordable level – and simple! One price for all.
