Isle of Wight jazz event 'has something for everyone'

Fans of jazz music may be tempted to book Isle of Wight holidays this summer in order to attend the Newport Jazz Weekend after the organisers stated it has something for everyone.

Some of the acts appearing at the event have already been confirmed and names on the bill include Gary Plumley, Edana Minghella, Digby Fairweather and Martin Taylor.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, chairman Bill Wills described Fairweather as one of the UK's best known jazzmen, while he said Martin Taylor is one of the leading guitarists in the world.

"Martin is coming from America to play here in July, as is top pianist Keith Ingham, who will perform two gigs at Quay Arts," Mr Wills told the news provider.

The jazz weekend is set to be held at a range of venues on the Isle of Wight and will take place from July 20th to 22nd.
