International jazz stars from around the world will be appearing at the 2009 Brecon Jazz Festival in Wales on Friday 7th through Sunday 9th August.

Held in locations across the town of Brecon, the festival will feature South African piano legend Adbullah Ibrahim, Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango and the Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem. UK Jazz's biggest star, Courtney Pine, will also return to perform his new Sidney Bechet-inspired album, Tradition in Transition.

There will be over 50 talks and concerts during the three-day period, as well as a number of free family events -- including a Jazz Carnival parade through the streets of Brecon on Saturday morning, in aid of Usk House Hospice; and a special Jazz Service at the Cathedral on Sunday.

The festival will run in five fantastic venues across the town -- Theatr Brycheiniog, the Big Tent on Captain's Walk, the newly-accessed Market Hall, the Castle Hotel and Brecon Cathedral -- and tickets will range in price from 5 to 15 pounds.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
