What is it about Porthcawl? Festival this weekend…

Porthcawl. Friendly people. Czech pianist Emil Viklicky found it sufficiently inspiring to write this tango-ish tune (the music starts at 2’45”)..It’s home to a famous (well, famous-ish) poet

This weekend also sees the annual Porthcawl International Jazz Festival, centred on the Grand Pavilion.

Here are the headliners:

The John Miller Orchestra (nephew of Glenn Miller).
Pasadena Roof Orchestra.
Nik Turner Quartet (Hawkwind founder).
Michael Janisch New York Standards Quartet
The Cottle Brothers
US guitarist B D Lenz
From France, Gabrielle Ducomble with her Quartet
The Capital City Jazz Orchestra from Cardiff
Wonderbrass

  1. I live 4 miles away and went down to see the Pasadenas last night; 15 quid for best seats in the house – gotta be a bargain
    Will be seeing BD Lenz tomorrow – for a tenner – afetr the FREE workshop he is running. This festival is a hidden gem
