Out of Town: Jazz Festival.

Good for Rainow. The Loop is mightily impressed that this small village has been so energetic and enterprising in getting their first Jazz festival together.

Organised by a group of local jazz enthusiasts they are bringing to Rainow a list of internationally acclaimed jazz, soul and blues musicians for an exciting weekend of hot (and cool) events.

We love the idea of the Summer Jazz picnic and are already planning what to wear and sprucing up the wicker hamper in anticipation.

Check out their web site to find out where and when you can catch Andy Scott’s Sax Assault, The Elliott Henshaw Band, The Stevie Williams Trio, Steve Shannon & Jazz Fusion, Just Midnight, The Barrel House Blues Band, Skipping Madrid, Sam Andrea, Mart Rodger and Manchester Jazz.

There's even workshops for children who play the sax or any other wind instrument run by professional musicians.

19-21 June
