Rosina Hepburn Band

Ipswich Jazz Festival

Introduced by our guest compere Stephen Foster.

Led by the really fine singer Rosina Hepburn, with a sound and style that conjures up the golden age of jazz, Rosina and her band pay homage to the divas who packed Carnegie Hall, Mister Kelly’s and the Village Gate, celebrating the Great American Songbook immortalised by Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Chris Connor, and Anita O’Day. With her unmistakable voice and vintage glamour, Rosina breathes new life into standards, whether fiery swing, heartfelt ballads or the coolest jazz and blues. Enjoy!

Ipswich Jazz Festival, 26th–27th June 2021

It’s nice to be back with live jazz!

After a terrible year for all of us, we’re back with a great line up of gigs for the 2021 Ipswich Jazz Festival.

This year’s festival will be different to past ones because we feature performances by nine very different bands showcasing the wide range of music which is jazz today. Each performance costs just £10 with a limited number of concessionary tickets for people on low incomes at just £1 (see below to find out who is eligible).

As things stand at the moment, the gigs will be limited to just 30 people in the audience with ventilation, socially distanced seating and other COVID-safe practices in place. For the same reason, there will be no bar, and the audience will leave the venue between each gig so we can clean. If things improve, we will make suitable changes. We will carefully monitor the advice and guidance about the pandemic and the festival will only go ahead if it is safe and legal to do so.

Ipswich Jazz Festival 2021 is dedicated to the memory of local jazz enthusiast, guitarist and Ipswich Hospital consultant haematologist, Dr Nick Dodd (27-06-1950 – 19-09-2020).
