Huddersfield Jazz Guitar Festival

Huddersfield Jazz Guitar Festival is becoming well-established in the town as a key event in the jazz diary. The 2019 festival will be the fifth festival. The first festival was organised under the auspices of the Huddersfield Jazz Guitar Society, and the society has written that, ‘the festival has grown over the years although it has always consistently featured some of the finest jazz guitarists.’

The Society is one of four in the country and attracts both professionals and amateurs alike. They meet regularly at the Rat and Ratchet pub. The Society was founded by Adrian Ingram, Ian Wroe, Martin Chung and Darren Dusten Bromley.

The first festival had concerts by John Etheridge, Remi Harris and Nigel Price. The festival has since gone on to feature performances by Terry Smith, Duck Baker, Cameron Pierre, Femi Temowo, Gary Potter, Val Bonetti and Jim Mullen as well as showcasing some of the country’s finest up and coming new players like Rob Luft, Becky Langan, and Zayn Mohammed.

The festival has also provided a platform for Society members and local players to perform. The festival hosts workshops and master classes where players can improve their musicianship.
