Ocean City Blues 'n' Jazz Festival Plymouth 2019

Some of the best names in Jazz and Blues are heading to Plymouth between 14th-16th August 2020


The Ocean City Blues 'n' Jazz Festival returns to The Barbican, 9th-11th August 2019. The Parade will be full of sounds of blues and jazz over the three days, and best of all it is free to attend.

It is a huge free music event for the public to enjoy bringing you some of the best names in Jazz and Blues, from local groups to international - enjoy a drink and a bite to eat while listening to the music.

Previous acts have included Pete Canter Quartet – a fine tenor saxophonist and composer with a turbo-charged rhythm section, bands like the The Rumblestrutters, Roger Marks Brass Farthing, The Blow Up and Magnolia Jazz Band also featured on the lineup.

Jack Cookson also appeared - a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from Plymouth, whose distinct style combines his deeply articulate lyrics with memorable melodic hooks and intricate, fingerstyle guitar arrangements, influenced by roots music from both sides of the Atlantic. The Sultans, a six-piece band, offered an exciting mix of danceable music, including swing, jump jive, Latin, rockabilly and rock’n’roll, with additional swing treatments of pop and rock songs.
