MAIN SPONSOR 2018
The wall2wall Jazz weekend starts with its traditional Festival Dinner – again at Abergavenny’s splendid Angel Hotel.
Those purchasing tickets will receive details of the menu by email and choices (plus any dietary requirements) can be sent to us for passing on to the Angel Hotel.
Our entertainment this year will be provided by the widely acclaimed Becki Biggins – as observed by Sir Michael Parkinson with the quote ‘Becki Biggins, great lass, great talent’.
Becki is a Grammy-Nominated jazz singer & saxophonist. She has had three No.1 albums in the US jazz charts with writing partner Paul Hardcastle.
Becki has performed for Princes, Prime Ministers and Presidents across the globe, and has appeared on UK National TV and radio shows – including Blue Peter, This Morning and BBC Radio 1, 2, 4 and 5.
She began performing jazz at the age of 12 and went on her first international tour, playing at the legendary Mardi Gras in New Orleans the following year.
The latest of Becki’s three independent jazz albums – The Positive has received national acclaim. She is currently working on material for her fourth independent studio release – It’s a Man’s World.
Making up the Quartet will be Guy Shotton on piano, Nick Kacal on bass and Alex Goodyear on drums.
The Festival Dinner has sold out both last year and in 2016, which has meant disappointing some – early booking of tickets is recommended.
