Aberdeen Jazz Fringe Festival, which is focused on showcasing young local talent, will take place later this month.
The event, which will run concurrently to Aberdeen Jazz Festival, will take place from Friday March 22 to Sunday March 31. Aberdeen Jazz Festival starts on Thursday March 21.
Organiser Rod Stewart said: “The fringe was started by John Kelman who used to be the general manager of Musa.
“I used to organise an alternative event that ran concurrently to the scheduled festival with him.
“It was something that was different that showcased local talent. I decided to carry it on as Musa is no longer there.”
Aberdeen Jazz Fringe Festival gigs will take place at Bar 99, Cafe Boheme, Grape and Grain, The Chester and The Noose and Monkey. A few young talented jazz musicians including Luke Radford and Oliver Eve will perform at the festival.
Fraser Peterkin from Trio Nadurra and Rod’s band Sidewinder Trio/Quartet will perform too.
