Jazz guitar festival comes to Wrexham

Jazz music is celebrated through guitars at a festival in Wrexham.

A decade of cool international jazz music across Wales is being celebrated on October 14th and 15th with the Wrexham International Guitar Festival.

Taking place in, as the name of the festival suggests, Wrexham, there will be a plethora of guitars on show, so guitar fans are urged to keep an eagle eye on catching a Gibson guitar, Rickenbacker guitar and/or a Takamine guitar being strummed.

It is all part of the town's Year of Culture, an event devised to boost Wrexham's position as a tourist hotspot, as well as inject some valuable cash into the local economy.

The Brownfield/Byrne Quintet (BBQ) adopt a youthful and contemporary approach to bebop style music from the 40s and 50s.

This is followed up with the Gary Potter Trio, led by the eponymous man himself.

It's quite a scoop to have Potter, who is one of the world's most respected jazz and country guitarists.

He has been described by Humphrey Littleton from BBC Radio 2 Jazz as: "A talent and name to know and mark."

A range of other jazz guitar specialists, across both acoustic guitar and electric guitar influenced music will be on show, which is wrapped up by Jimmy Bruno from the US.
