Bude's Twentieth Jazz
What a cracking festival
held in the NW corner of Cornwall from Sat 25th Aug - Sat 1st
Sept - a great thank you
to the Festival organiser Rachel Hayward and the Festival
Manual and Diana Ohison, and not forgetting the countless venue
stewards in making the
whole thing possible. For the ones who could not make the venue
here are a few video
clips and pics of different bands and, of course, not forgetting the
Bude Buskers outside the
Falcon Inn - or as one of the locals was heard to say - I see
the Orchestra are playing
again this morning.
