A varied line up of funk, traditional jazz, blues, dreamy vocals and everything in between will grace the Burton Agnes music festival.

The programme includes a celebration of Kenny Ball, who was due to perform at the festival but passed away earlier this year. It will be performed by his Jazzmen and his son Keith.

Burton Agnes Hall’s East Lawn hosts the jazz festival’s main stage. Inside the stately home, near Bridlington, there will be intimate acoustic performances.

The old stableyard will hum to the strains of rhythm and blues guitar during the weekend of Friday July 5 to Sunday July 7.

The music gets under way with Octopus on Friday from 6.30pm. The eight-piece will be followed by Cherry-Lee Mewis

Saturday’s all-day programme includes: the Lemon Monkeys, the Potter Ensemble, Gwyneth Herbert and the Kenny Ball celebration.

The Alligators - appearing at the festival for the fourth time – close the Saturday session.

Rob Law Quartet with Thom Whitworth gets Sunday’s sound off to a start at noon.

During the day the line-up includes Trudy Kerr quartet, 24 Pesos, Ben Beattie’s Jazz Essentials plus owner of the hall Simon Cunliffe-Lister.

Festival organiser and saxophonist Simon will play out the weekend with Ben and his 
band.
