The Line Up

2023

Details of the line up will be posted here and on our social media pages and groups during 2023. Expect the same diversity and excellence as in 2022.

2022

2022 was the first Somerset Jazz Festival and included a contemporary chamber quartet, jazz/world/classical music fusions, Jazz Standards and Swing bands, Ethiopian jazz, Upbeat jazz from the roaring 20s, a Tango band, a Brazilian Jazz quartet and a world/cinematic/prog/jazz group improvisation session led by the Art Council funded composer Daniel Inzani. 

DANIEL INZANI

Tezeta/Spindle Quartet/Yola/Count BOBO

Arts Council Funded Composer Daniel leads a group of talented musicians, combining Ethiopian jazz, world fusion, cinematic prog and group improvisation.

LUNA COHEN

Hailing from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Luna Cohen’s music represents and reflects the rich diversity of Brazilian culture. Over the past two decades, the London-based vocalist, described as “one of the most interesting singers and composers among the rising stars of MPB – música popular brasileira” (Time Out Barcelona), has perfected her craft and earned a spot in the foreground of the jazz scene.

Scarlet Muses

Bristol-based jazz + swing band

Jazz and swing served up with a whole heap of pizzazz – that’s the Scarlet Muse promise and that’s what they deliver. Fronted by Ruth Brown’s vocals, with a red hot rhythm section it’s a gift to the swing dance massive.

TANGO CALOR

“A great punching combo that combines tradition with Nuevo flavours. One of the best tango trios you will hear in the UK without a doubt”
Eduardo Bozzo, Tango Alchemy

Tango Calor is one of the most exciting tango bands performing in the UK.The trio was started by bandoneon player Mirek Salmon in Bristol in 2016 with jazz pianist and film composer Daan Temmink and Cuban vocal sensation Indira Roman

EASTERN STRINGS

TRIO 

The Bristol based duo “Eastern Strings” features the combined 15 strings of Daphna Sadeh’s double bass and Knud Stüwe’s oud.

​Expect a tapestry of rich colours, from dark to light, driving rhythms, haunting tunes and imaginative improvisations.

The repertoire includes Middle Eastern music, Klezmer and Ladino pieces as well as originals.
