Bray Jazz Festival



Bray Jazz Festival returns for its 13th year in 2012.

The festival enjoys a reputation for showcasing contemporary musical improvisers from both at home and abroad, and this year will be no exception.

You'ill notice that we've had to scale back a little on our programme in recent times- an inevitable consequence of the economic downturn and the consequent squeeze on arts funding and sponsorship opportunities. 

That said, we believe that while volume might have been hit, the quality of this year's line up is as strong as ever. We are pleased of our billing as "one of the very best small jazz festivals in Europe" (courtesy of All About Jazz), and intent to live up to it again, in 2012.

Thanks, as ever to the concert goers who come out and support us each year, to our loyal sponsors, without whom we couldn't function. And thanks also to the many service providers, technicians, hoteliers, bar owners, drivers, ground crew and of course musicians - who make Bray Jazz happen every year.
