The Appleby International Music Festival takes place from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th July 2006 in Appleby in Westmoreland, Cumbria.
Appleby Jazz Festival is a 3 day event that aims to promote and develop the creative talent available in this country while also creating a unique opportunity for the more rural population of the north of England to experience and enjoy music of a high artistic level.
There will be two different venues. The first is a large marquee catering for over 600 people and the other is a redundant church used for more intimate and smaller concerts.
The whole site includes a restaurant, bar, campsite and car parking and runs along the banks of the river Eden. The music covers the wide spectrum of improvised music in this country and there is a deliberate policy to try and pay all musicians taking part the same and to avoid the more normal hierarchy of bigger stars and lesser stars.
Artists confirmed for the festival include Stan Tracey, Kenny Wheeler, Alan Barnes, Peter King, Don Weller, and more.
Tickets are priced at £65 for the weekend and £10 - £15 for the indiviudal concerts.
There will be more information here when available.
