PLEASE NOTE – THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL 2021.

The Cairndale Hotel in Dumfries will host a weekend of jazz music next month.

The Dumfries Jazz Weekend will take place between the 20th – 22nd of March 2020.

Headlining bands include Havana Swing, Mike Daly’s Dixieland Rhythm Kings, Savannah Jazz Band, and Baby Jools and The Jazzaholics.

Also appearing over the weekend will be Tom Kincaid, a renowned jazz pianist and versatile composer who will be joined by his “Three Bears”.

Tom plays a diverse repertoire of mainstream swing and jazz standards, rock n’ roll and blues, traditional and New Orleans. Sought after for his piano style, Tom has performed in many prestigious venues worldwide including Ronnie Scott’s, The Ritz Hotel and Lion’s Den (New York) as well as in various international Jazz Festivals. Tom will perform on both Saturday and Sunday of the Dumfries Jazz Weekend.

Jazz scene in Dumfries & Galloway

Although it’s been several years since Dumfries Jazz Club held their regular club nights in town, there has still been a keen interest in the jazz scene in Dumfries and Galloway. Local bands such as the Strumsum Blues Band have continued to perform live across the length and breadth of the region (and beyond).

Fraser Milligan of the Strumsum Blues Band has been instrumental in seeing the return of this major new event in his hometown of Dumfries and together with Katy Clachan (Ayr Jazz Club and Stranraer Jazz Festival) and Mike Daly (Dixieland Rhythm Kings), they have collectively come up with this fantastic line-up.

The Cairndale Hotel has agreed to host future events if this one proves to be a success.

Weekend passes are now available priced at £60, and jazz enthusiasts can also purchase tickets for individual days. Special deals are available including dinner, bed and breakfast.
