Brecon Jazz Festival organisers, Lynne Gornall and Roger Cannon, send a big thank you to all The Friends who have, through their subscriptions and donations, enabled FoBj to hand over £2,500 to them again this year. As they receive very little funding and are volunteers themselves, depending on volunteers throughout the festival, every amount they receive is vital to ensure Brecon Jazz Festival continues and flourishes.
On behalf of The Friends we would like to extend our thanks to the festival organisers and all the volunteers from Brecon Jazz Club for all their hard work and excellent organisation. They were always ready to assist and it was lovely to be greeted at the venues by smiling faces. As soon as we receive the reviews and feedback on this 2019 festival they will be available on this site. But in the meantime, from our point of view, it was a fabulous Festival – in its 36th year – with fantastic musicians giving wonderful concerts throughout the weekend. What more could we ask for? Even the weather, although it was a bit wet and windy, was kind to us compared to other regions of the UK – with the sun putting in an appearance from time to time.
