The Late Night Music Lounge will be a new addition to the 3rd Rye International Jazz & Blues Festival.
As spring makes a welcome appearance so do our plans for the 3rd Rye International Jazz & Blues Festival.
We are well underway in finalising the exciting festival plans for summer 2014. The 3rd Rye International Jazz & Blues Festival takes place from Thursday 21st – Monday 25th August over the August Bank Holiday weekend. We will be starting to announce the programme and sponsors from early May.
Rye was buzzing for five days with the sound of cool jazz, Latin grooves, racy blues and world rhythms. Packed audiences attended world class headline concerts including bassist Kyle Eastwood with his 6 piece band, singing sensations Ian Shaw and Sarah Jane Morris, Theo Jackson, Melissa James, Earl Okin, Paul Gunn and Worsted and Kasai Masai.
We hope you enjoyed the unique atmosphere of Rye and experienced an unforgettable five days of the very best in live music entertainment. Our programme for 2013 was all about having fun, relaxing and soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of Rye and the sun (with the exception of Saturday), whilst experiencing and listening to a diverse mix of great jazz influenced musical styles - and we certainly had a wonderful time!
