This year’s Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival kicks off on the 14th of July. Amongst a wealth of talent playing that first day there are a couple of names that might particularly catch your eye in the programme, and we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away…
At 8 pm in Edinburgh’s famous Festival Theatre, the Jazz & Blues festival presents a spectacular double-header as the John Scofield Uberjam Band with Dennis Chambers shares a night with the Mike Stern and Randy Brecker Group.
John Scofield is a true guitar icon, not only as a virtuoso player, but also as a musician with a list of credits that include some of the true legends in the business. His Uberjam band is a powerhouse of jazz-funk-rock, driven by the groove of drummer Dennis Chambers:
Mike Stern’s forty-year career has included time with artists such as Miles Davis, Billy Cobham and Jaco Pastorius. His skillful soloing is perfectly complemented by the talents of Randy Brecker on trumpet:
You can book your seats to catch an evening with these musical icons here, but if you’re feeling lucky, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away, simply enter below and we’ll draw the winners on the 5th July.
The Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival runs from the 14th to the 23rd July and features a spectacular array of talent, and a huge amount of opportunity to turn a good night out into a great one. Check out the complete programme here.
