THANK YOU TO ALL WHO MADE 2014 SUCH A GLORIOUS WEEKEND
The 2014 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.
This year's line up included Chantel McGregor, British Blues Award's guitarist of the year AND female vocalist of the year 2013; the legendary jump, jive, swing, rythmn and blues of King Biscuit and the Pleasure Boys; New-Orleans-Bourbon-bar sultry vocals and boogie piano of Tipitina; festival band favourites, gospel tinged Polly and the Billets Doux. And if that wasn't varied enough, we had master-saxophonist Alan Barnes, teaming up with Horace Silver experts The Give a Little Love Orchestra for 'Watching the Detectives': music celebrating Sherlock Holmes and Columbo!
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 our catering team, ranging from homemade burgers to spicy curries, 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.
"The whole experience was brilliant...the combination of antiquity and youthful influence from Simon and his family, protecting tradition and heritage yet creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere. We will be back again." Festivalgoers Tom and Hildy Young

SOME COMMENTS AFTER THE 2014 FESTIVAL
'My wife and I wanted to express our thanks for the wonderful day we had at the Jazz Festival. The music, organisation, and all the staff were excellent. The atmosphere was lovely and the setting beautiful. We very much hope there will be a festival in 2015 and look forward to attending.'
'First time I have been and it was excellent...loved everything you do...'
'We came to the 2014 Jazz & Blues Festival over the weekend and had a fantastic time. We came with our motorhome and spent the weekend which made it just perfect. Our thanks to everyone at Burton Agnes who made the Festival such a wonderful experience. We would like to come again in 2015 and would be grateful if you would let us know when tickets will be on sale.'
'We have returned home to Devon after our brilliant weekend at Burton Agnes Hall full of good memories of great music and above all the magical place in which you lucky people live and work. The programme had an excellent variety, the food and drink were uniformly delicious and the facilities, especially the showers, best I have experienced in similar festivals...it was almost like a weekend garden party!'
