2014 City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival!

Posted on: 28th April 2014

The Playhouse was echoing to the sounds of a bygone era as it stepped back in time for the launch of the 2014 City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival programme, which takes place over the May Bank Holiday weekend May 1 - 5.

This is the 13th year of the city's annual celebration of all things jazz, and the theatre provided a decadent backdrop to the event, with a special Speakeasy theme adding a touch of moonshine and magic to the proceedings. Gangsters and molls presented guests with their programmes, while Dana Masters, Linley Hamilton and local musicians had the theatre ringing to some old school jazz classics.

As well as the many very exciting events at The Playhouse for the festival, including Dana Masters, David Lyttle, the Paul McIntyre Trio, The Playhouse is also delighted to provide the box office for the Spiegeltent,at Guildhall Square.

90's music fans will catch Curtis Stigers' soulful blend of jazz and rock amidst the mirrored vaudeville splendour of the Spiegeltent, which is renowned the world over as a truly alternative festival venue.
