Get Ready for the Scottish Jazz & Blues Weekend
Since their online festival in July, our Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival team has been working incredibly hard to get back to what they do best - presenting professional gigs with exceptional musicians that audiences love. This December, they’re bringing you four incredible nights of brand-new online gigs. Every gig fuses high quality artistic programming with top notch production values, recorded by a team of expert videographers and sound engineers, following social distancing measures at all times. This will be their first foray into pay-per-view with each concert costing £10 and when the show’s about to start, the link to join will appear on your ticket or you can access the stream link that will be emailed to you on the day.
