Day of Django

FRIDAY 5th-6th JUNE

Early bird joint tickets for Robin Nolan and Jimmy Rosenberg (5th); and Romane and Daniel John Martin (6th) are available now for a special price of £20 from Ticketweb

All other events are free.

Join us for two days celebrating the life and music of the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt.

 

This year we welcome a very special guest indeed, the one and only Jimmy Rosenberg who will be visiting the UK for the first time in over a decade as part of his comeback tour. This is a super rare opportunity to see one of the true legends of gypsy jazz playing alongside the great Robin Nolan.

And if that wasn't enough, we also welcome the US gypsy jazz band Ultrafaux, led by Michael Joseph Harris, who will play our now traditional late night slot after Robin and Jimmy's gig.

Through Saturday there will be jams and workshops, plus an opportunity to join in the rest of the festival and see our house band, Shades of Django.

The festival concludes on Saturday evening with two of the finest musicians in this genre, Romane and Daniel John Martin.

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
