In a fitting finale to the festival, we’re proud to welcome Courtney Pine as our headline act.

Standing out as a true trailblazer in the British Jazz community, Courtney embodies the dramatic transformation of UK Jazz over the past three decades. His revolutionary, multi-instrument talent has inspired a new generation of musicians to broaden their own styles, bringing Jazz to wider and more diverse audiences.

Winner of a Mercury Music Prize and Gold Badge Award, honoured with an OBE and CBE for services to music, and with 16 studio albums to his credit, Courtney continues to tour with his award winning band, delighting audiences around the globe.

His Black Notes from the Deep was released to critical acclaim in 2017, featuring guest vocals from Omar - himself known for his unique voice, multi-instrumental talent and production skills.

The Festival is sponsored by the Arts Council, the University of Central Lancashire, the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries and the Creative Arts Development Group. We are partners with the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival, the Preston Caribbean Carnival and Making a Mark and we are supported by Preston City Council. (c) 2018 UCLan
