With an eclectic mix of performers from across the globe, organisers say this year’s Liverpool International Jazz Festival (LIJF) is the most multicultural it has ever been.
The series of events organised and hosted by Liverpool Hope University runs from Thursday 24th February to Sunday 27th February 2022.
The global pandemic meant the Festival wasn’t able to run in 2021.
But having first launched in 2013, the Jazz Festival has played host to some of the genre’s leading lights, including Courtney Pine, Denys Baptiste, Roller Trio, Impossible Gentlemen, Kit Downes, Led Bib, Philip Catherine, GoGo Penguin, Troyka, Neil Cowley Trio, and Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio.
One of this year’s Festival highlights – and perhaps the most accessible show for non-jazz aficionados – will see the Camilla George Band take to the stage on Saturday 26th February.
The Liverpool International Jazz Festival runs from Thursday 24th February to Sunday 27th February 2022 at the Capstone Theatre. Tickets are on sale now via Ticket Quarter or through the Capstone Theatre website.
