Artists Announced for brand new Ambleside Festival, 31st August - 3rd September
Zeffirelli's will host an all star line up of internationally recognised jazz musicians during their first festival, in honour of the great pianist and composer John Taylor.
Derek Hook has run jazz at Zeffirelli's for a number of years and the well known composition Ambleside Days was the result of a commission offered to John Taylor by Zeffirelli's and Northern Arts.
Performers will include Dave Holland, Norma Winstone, Tim Garland, Gwilym Simcock, Mike Walker, Nikki Iles and Joe Locke amongst many others. This impressive roster displays the huge influence Taylor's contributions to the art-form had on musicians across the world.
