Spring is in the air, and so is Jazz!

MARTIN LEWIS, MARKETING MANAGER OF JAZZ IN MARTINBOROUGH TELLS US WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT THIS FESTIVAL

"Spring is in the air - and so is jazz! Just like the buds on our apple trees that are almost ready to burst, our 7th annual festival of Jazz In Martinborough will blossom into view on 31 August and bring joy to all those who are lucky enough to be there.

I love listening to jazz. I read recently that evidence suggests our brains bind us to the music we heard as teenagers more tightly than anything we hear as an adult, and that this link doesn’t weaken as we age. Consider me as 'Exhibit A' in this theory! Between the tender age of 17 and 20 my best mate played a lot of jazz records when we hung out together and now it's pretty much all I listen to. It was a lucky escape really. Had I been less fortunate I could now be into some very Dire Straits indeed."


"I love living in Martinborough. It packs a lot into a small space, with food and wine to rival anywhere in the country. But it has something even more special: a community spirit. It's what binds us together and what drives us to organise so many awesome events, year after year. Imagine my joy at being able to combine my two loves through being a part of Jazz In Martinborough! Not only do I get the buzz from being a part of a great team, I also get to hear my favourite music in the place I love the most. And who knows - perhaps the brain of another impressionable teenager or two will be given the helpful nudge that I got." - Martin Lewis, marketing manager, Jazz in Martinborough
