The 2015 Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival was a great success. Surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and set in the award winning grounds and Great Hall of this Elizabethan stately home the festival hosted the UK's hottest jazz and blues acts. 

The 2015 line up celebrated one hundred years since the birth of perhaps the  greatest of all jazz singers, Billie Holiday. To celebrate, the critically acclaimed tribute to Billie, ‘Lady Sings The Blues’, Val Wiseman, twice crowned ‘best singer’ in the British Jazz Awards played and was truly spell bounding, while Jo Harman and Company wowed us with a compelling mix of roots, blues, gospel and soul influences and the New York Brass band ended the festival on a high with the 'conga' on the lawns!!  

As always, bands overflowed from the outdoor main stage into the Great Hall, our shops and cafe courtyard, and the late night sessions in our bar tent. Delicious food was prepared by Field and Forage, ice creams from our vintage ice cream van, and bakes and cupcakes in our tea tent. Local, award winning Wold Top beers were on tap, brewed just a few miles away.

'Wow another brilliant weekend. Thank you to all of the team who work so hard over the weekend, a big well done and thanks to you all from two very satisfied lovers of the festival. ' 2015 Festivalgoer, Val Bareham
