Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival

Jazz! Jazz? Mmmm, jazz. I spent the weekend covering the Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival which took place in Colston Hall with workshops at Bristol Folk House (more festivals should take place in a single building that has coffee and seating). I haven’t shot an lot of jazz and blues over the years so it was nice change from screaming and pint glasses hitting me on the back of the head. They’re a friendly bunch the jazz crowd. Lillian Boutte, gospel legend and festival patron, even high-fived me backstage. Here’s a rather large selection of pics from the three days (more on the Festival’s Facebook page) including a portrait of an inspiration of mine, David Redfern.
