Weds 5th July | 8.45pm | £6 on the door Jam Experiment (pictured)
Jam Experiment is a young jazz quintet who opened last year's festival with a blast and won the 2014 Jazz North Introduces Scheme shortly after their debut gig supporting Liane Carroll. The line-up includes saxophonist Alexander Bone (winner of the inaugural BBC Young Musician Jazz Award and Rising Star in the 2016 British Jazz Awards), with Rory Ingham (trombone), Toby Comeau (keyboard), Joe Lee (bass) and Jonny Mansfield (drums). All band members write for the band and contribute musical ideas equally, creating a beautifully varied set of music and a very individual, cool and funky sound. This gig is part of their 30-date UK Album Launch Tour 2017.
