Edinburgh Jazz Roots: Mike Hart Memorial Concert
George Square Spiegeltent
George Square, Edinburgh
Friday 12th July, 3.00pm

Mike Hart, Edinburgh Jazz Festival founder, and director for well over 20 years was a key player in virtually the entire history of the Edinburgh traditional jazz scene. The Festival exists because of his inspiration and hard work. We wanted to mark his passing by celebrating the music and musicians of traditional Edinburgh jazz, from the early 1950’s to today, and referencing the style that Mike brought to the early years of EJBF. Norrie Thomson, Graham Blamire, and Hamish McGregor, long time colleagues of Mike, have put together a special programme with will feature recreations of The Climax Jazz Band, The Society Syncopators and Scottish Jazz Advocates, Mike’s main bands as a musicians, but will also present many of the musicians who knew and worked with Mike, still active today, including Jim Petrie, Spirits of Rhythm, Kenny Milne, Bob Busby, Lennie Herd, Gus Ferguson, Ian Boyter, Plus Hamish McGregor and Graham Blamire, of course!
