Islay Jazz Festival September 2012

Was driving home listening to the Jazz programme on Radio Scotland last night (before my daughter took control of the dial to search for another Katy Perry track!) and heard a great interview about the forthcoming Islay Jazz Festival taking place on that wonderful island between the 15th and 17th of September.

It just sounded such a great event and even the quirkiness of the descriptions made it all the more potent; the car ferries are full already but you can still take the passenger ferry over and hire a car; there is now a campsite available and someone has posted some availability in an old eighties style caravan!

Having spent the afternoon in the Su Casa music tent at Troon Live last weekend I am so in the mood to enjoy more and more small live music events and maybe there's a book in there somewhere for 2013! Events such as these provide a reason for visiting a destination and savouring all else that it has to offer.

A visit to the Jazz Festival on Islay is going to expose you to whiskies you've never dreamt of or possibly even a round of golf on one of Scotland's most impressive hidden courses. You're going to witness the stunning scenery of a drive up Loch Lomond or Loch Fyne or down the west caost and the Argyll hills and mountains.

The same weekend there's also the Best of the West Fest at Inverary - how good a weekend would that be if you could do abit of both!

Anyway more information on both music based events on the links above. Go immerse yourself.
