The following are comments we have received via email about last years festival:
“Great festival this year – as ever – some really enjoyable sets with musicians that I haven’t seen before, as well as many old favourites.”- Kay Holden
“What a marvellous festival last weekend was! This was my third consecutive SWJ festival.” – Geoff Hodgson
“Just a line to say how much we enjoyed The Bennett Bros. and John Maddox on Friday evening.- First class playing coupled with great style and showmanship- A `must` for next year. Keep up the good work.” – Paul and les Hickman
“Thank you for another great weekend of jazz.”
“Congratulations on a fantastic 2015 festival.”
“Enjoyed the festival so much that we are at present booking cottage for 2016.” – Trevor
“Excellent festival again last week, as ever. Thanks to all concerned.” – Tony Coleman
“Just some random thoughts which you do not need to respond to. We have been coming for a few years now but we thought this year was the best so far. So much good music. Apart from the “big” concerts a special mention of Georgia Mancio. Living in darkest Shropshire this was the first time we had seen her and were very impressed. A really good singer with, of course, first rate backing. Although I was outside of my comfort zone I also liked the Larry Bartley gig. We particularly enjoyed the final “reed breed” concert which provided an excellent finale.As always congratulations to you and all the team. We look forward to next!”
