Showcasing the best established and emerging jazz artists from around the world, Ealing Jazz Festival will return to Walpole Park on 28-29 July.
This year’s lineup is led by Afrobeat pioneer and iconic drummer TONY ALLEN, the driving force behind Fela Kuti’s band Africa ’70. Allen will perform alongside Mobo Award-winning singer-songwriter ZARA MCFARLANE, experimental jazz band VELS TRIO, all female jazz septet NÉRIJA, among others.
Founded in 1984, Ealing Jazz Festival has developed in partnership with Ealing Council & The Event Umbrella to become one of the biggest jazz events in the UK. Spanning classic and contemporary jazz, it has become a cornerstone of the Ealing’s Summer Festivals series, with 2018 promising to be its finest year yet.
