Lichfield Jazz & Blues 2012

This year’s Real Ale Jazz & Blues Festival (Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th June) was arguably one of the very best yet with with some of the finest and most creative musicians around, and the line up was one of the most varied we have ever had yet! Something for everyone: electric blues, acoustic blues, lap-steel guitar, flamenco guitar, trad jazz, gypsy jazz, modern jazz, brass ensembles and funk. There were also a number of workshops.

This years line up included:

Paul Cox & Charlie Fabert
Eduardo Niebla
Derrin Nauendorf Band
Led Bib
Gabrielle Ducomble
Kevin Brown’s Shackdusters
Threeway (with Steve Lodder, Steve Waterman & Ben Crosland)
Clare Free
George Huxley’s Jazzmen
The Producers
Fret & FiddleThe Tom Woodman Band
The Cohen Brothers


As usual there were excellent facilities with plenty of safe space for families to enjoy plus camping/caravans a few yards from the music. Great food provided by BJ Catering (as well as those famous pork pies) and some 30 Real ales plus a well stocked bar.
