Some of the world’s leading jazz musicians will be running free teaching workshops for aspiring musical youngsters. These workshops, which take place in Newtown from August 27 to 29 will focus on the intricacies of jazz music as well as the industry as a whole.


The impressive list of artists includes the acclaimed Swiss harpist Andreas Vollenweider; Canadian trumpeter Ingrid Jensen; American pianist Bob Baldwin and saxophonist Marion Meadows as well as American jazz vocalist Arlee Leonard.


The two groups giving workshops are Netherlands’ popular outfit Room 11 and Spain's Sumrrá.

These workshops have become an integral part of the proceedings. It is thanks to some of the world’s top musicians that the youth and aspiring musicians have been exposed to skills they may not otherwise have had access to.
