Our festival is all about bringing the best jazz and blues music here to Edinburgh, whether that's the finest local musicians or artists from the other side of the world.

In the latter category, we have some fantastic acts from Australia this year...

Visiting the Festival for the first time, we have two performances on offer from the Bearded Gypsy Band, a great group with a wide range of influences and a LOT of energy. Bearded Gypsy Band will be at the Tron Kirk on Saturday 25 July, and the following day they'll play the St Andrew Square Spiegeltent (book online now for the Saturday or Sunday)

Briana Cowlishaw is another artist that we're delighted to welcome for the first time - and that smooth, beautiful voice is sure to delight her audience just as much. Briana plays The Jazz Bar on Saturday 18 July (book online now)

Bringing their warm contemporary Jazz sound to the Festival are Sydney's The Vampires, who play a great form of stylish, happy, uplifting music. The Vampires play two nights at The Jazz Bar, Friday and Saturday 17 and 18 July (book online now for the Friday or Saturday)

And then there's Anita Wardell, known far and wide for her superb jazz voice - full of power, vocally nimble and hugely versatile. Catch Anita at The Jazz Bar on Friday 17 July (book online now)
