Now in its 24th year, the festival is back with a fresh palette and a new focus on diversity and boundary-pushing jazz, whilst continuing to inspire with initiatives that engage local artists and musicians.

This year our Jazz Festival Artist in Residence is Al Young – his work is a cocktail of autobiographical and imagined themes rendered, often playfully, in paint.

We also welcome back Dan Barnett as this year’s Clarence Jazz Festival Ambassador and are pleased to announce the 2020 Scholars, Billie Raffety (Vocals), Elijah Davies (Guitar) and Sebastian Folvig (Bass) who will all perform on the final Sunday.
