Legendary irish R’n’B veteran Van Morrison and former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman are just two of the headlining acts at this year’s Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival in July.
Tickets for showcase gigs by Morrison, Wyman, Jools Holland and African piano genius Abdullan Ibrahim went on sale on Tuesday.
Wyman’s band will also feature Dundonian soul star Hamish Stuart, formerly of the Average White Band, who played with Paul McCartney’s band for several years.
The full line-up will be revealed next month.
The four acts mentioned will appear at the Festival Theatre in the 36th annual Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival. The 2013 event boasted 146 concerts and performers and more than 50,000 people attended.
