Join us at the Devil Rye for our late night jazz sessions where you can relax and unwind listening to superb live music. There will be a fully licensed bar available and snacks to also enjoy with doors opening at 10.30pm and music until 1.00am.
On Saturday 24th August festival favourite Liane Carroll will perform the late night jazz session with Roger Carey.
Having been something of a stalwart of the British jazz scene for many years, Liane has in the last few years gone on to enjoy huge critical acclaim and is now considered by many to be one of the top jazz vocalists not just in the UK, but worldwide.
Her eagerly awaited second solo album, ‘Slow Down,’ was released last year and has received superb reviews. In December, the album was picked by the Sunday Times as one of their top five jazz albums of the year. She has enthralled audiences from New Zealand to Brazil and New York, equally at home in intimate jazz venues and vast arenas such as 2016 BBC Late Night Proms and Glastonbury 2017.
Multi-award-winning vocalist, Liane Carroll, started playing piano at the age of three and by 15 was already working also as a singer and composer. Her wide-ranging credits include: Gerry Rafferty, Jerry Donahue, London Elektricity, Long John Baldry, Charlie Haden, Jacqui Dankworth, Brian Kellock, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin and vocal groups BLINQ and a trio with Sara Colman and Sophie Bancroft.

“Liane Carroll doesn’t just sing jazz. She is jazz. This is jazz of the highest quality. Believe.” Mojo
”...casually expressive, unblinkingly honest, and often charmingly autobiographical album by the superb British standards-and-ballads singer Liane Carroll…” The Guardian
“Liane Carroll has that rare ability to meld effortless, often transcendent vocal and piano technique, with heart stopping emotion and soul bearing power. It should be no surprise then that her latest album, Seaside, combines all this with a savvy sophistication befitting of one of Britain’s finest jazz singers.” Jazzwise
“Another great British musician; I’m a big fan of hers” Jamie Cullum
