A hugely entertaining and joyous tribute to Duke Ellington from an international big band at the top of its game for the Saturday of Lyme Regis's jazz festival

Special Norwegian guests, Equinor Big Band, pay homage to “The Duke” with their fabulous “Shades of Ellington”. The band features 26 musicians (yes, it’s that big!) and make their only UK appearance here in Lyme Regis. So, don’t miss the best swing concert you’ll hear all year from an international big band at the top of its game.

The band has been playing together since 1990 and are based in Stavanger on the eastern Norweigan seaboard. We are extremely lucky they’ve chosen to play in Lyme Regis, their only UK appearance in 2019. Don’t miss the best swing concert you’ll hear all year from a band at the top of its game.

They’ve previously performed at Swansea Jazz Festival (UK), Riverboat Jazzfestival (Denmark), Upton Jazz Festival (UK), Roskilde Jazz Days (Denmark), Jazzkaar Tallinn (Estonia) and Molde Jazzfestival (Norway).
