New Stage for Glastonbury 2010: Bourbon Street Jazz ‘n’ Blues

This summer’s 40th Anniversary Glastonbury Festival will see the introduction of a new stage for the event – the Bourbon Street Jazz ‘n’ Blues Stage.

Bourbon Street will offer festival-goers lively jazz ‘n’ blues with the sounds of saxophones, rolling drum beats and dirty bass lines to get the audience dancing, alongside a few smooth grooves. Genres such as Filthy Swing, Jump Jive and Texas Boogie Blues are just some of the styles that will be represented by the artists on show.

The line-up is expected to feature a mixture of up and coming stars and veteran jazz performers including including Carmen Ghia and The Hotrods, Nicola Farnon, Ben Martin Quartet, Jacqui Wicks, Djangonauts, Kubla Khan, Ryan Taylor, The Wagon Train, The Dizzy Club, Top Shelf Jazz, Bex Marshall, and Leon O’Doherty.

The blues line-up is expected to feature acts such as Charley Macaulay, Dave Arcari, Bex Marshall, Martin Harley Band, King King, Aynsley Lister Band, The Oli Brown Band, Brigitte DeMeyer, P-A-U-L, Marcus Bonfanti, Sandi Thom, and Stephen Dale Petit . The official line-up of acts has not yet been announced by the Festival.

As an added touch: the Bar at Bourbon Street Jazz ‘n’ Blues will be modelled on an original Bourbon Street bar straight out of New Orleans and will feature more than twenty different bourbons, plus ice cold beers, champagnes, fresh ground coffee and a selection of signature cocktails including the ‘Hurricane’ and the ‘Hand Grenade’. An authentic experience to help make your visit to Bourbon Street a highlight of your Glasto weekend.
