First up is Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, one of the most recognisable figures on the national music scene thanks to his 'Later...' show. Jools has played live with a huge variety of legendary and cutting edge artists and released over 20 albums of his own material.

Elsewhere on the bill is two-time Grammy winner Marcus Miller as well as the Branford Marsalis Quartet , led by the legendary saxophonist himself. Also appearing will be the Neil Cowley Trio, who were recently nominated as Jazz Artist of the Year at the inaugural Jazz FM Awards.

They are joined by award winning alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch, one of the most cutting edge UK jazz/hip-hop artists, as well as Bristol’s country, soul, gospel and jazz infused Phantom Limb and London-based vocalist Zara McFarlane.

The bill will also feature a stage curated by two of the biggest names in swing club nights White Mink and Peppermint Candy who will take over a stage to deliver a first class night of Electro-Swing & Speakeasy Jazz.

Many more acts will be announced across the coming weeks and months including the Saturday night headliners.
