Callander Jazz and Blues Festival

Just recovering from a hectic weekend of haggis and music in Callander
The festival has been running for a few years with a heady mix of Blues, Jazz, Jive, Swing and everything in between, with various styles of the genres being performed.

The festival has a similar vibe to Marsden with the whole town seeming to get involved, definitely worth a visit if you've not been. I caught 10 acts of the 45 on offer over the 3 days here are some photos from the festival.

The Truetones in the crowded Crown
Jill Saward - Shakatak in the High School
The Jazz Pack (please give me the name) back in The Crown

Iain Ewing - Jazz and Swing

Kent Duchaine - Blues

Four of the Beverley Beirne and her Quartet - Jazz
 about town the morning after their gig
