Jazz Up North

Celebrating our 13th year of Jazz Up North, Tanks Arts Centre presents a series as unpredictable as it is soulful.

A seriously diverse genre rooted in Blues, Jazz can be experienced as swinging big bands, hard-hitting rhythms to laid-back mellow harmonies or be-bop.

Its earthy grooves and sometimes improvised free jazz style make for captivating and charming performances and a social night out at the Tanks.

Stay tuned for more acts announced throughout the year!
