Line-up announced for Newport Jazz Weekend

The line-up for this year's much-vaunted Newport Jazz Weekend has been announced, with the event always a popular attraction for those visiting the Isle of Wight.

Accomplished saxophonist Alan Barnes - winner of the 2012 alto saxophone, clarinet and baritone saxophone categories at the British Jazz Awards - will be headlining this year's showpiece, the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

He will be joined by an array of fantastic musicians, including world famous guitarist Martin Taylor, trumpeter Bruce Adams and top pianist David Newton.

Ran by a host of music fans and volunteers, the non-profit event is set to take place between July 19th and 21st and will see jam sessions, workshops, live performances and much more happening for all those interested in the island's lively jazz scene.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that popular Israeli-born jazz musician Gilad Atzmon will be hosting a concert on the island for jazz fanatics, which will take place at the Quay Arts Cafe on March 1st.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801520208-ADNFCR
