Sidmouth Jazz Festival 2022: Latest Plans Announced
Originally called The National Jazz Festival, it was a showcase of British and American jazz and was held at the Richmond Athletic Ground in the quiet London suburb of Richmond. The first festival was held on August 26 and 27, 1961, and was headlined by Johnny Dankworth and Chris Barber. The inspiration for the event was the Newport Jazz Festival, which has been held in the USA since 1954.
In 1964, the festival was renamed the “National Jazz and Blues Festival”, reflecting the change in musical taste that had taken place in Britain in the early 1960s. Gradually, the jazz component of the festival was reduced, and in 1967 the festival featured the likes of Cream, Fleetwood Mac and Jeff Beck, while jazz groups were relegated to afternoon sessions.
One of the hallmarks of the festival during the 1960s was its constant search for a permanent home: the noise of the festival and the crowds merged with the locals, and the festival moved from Richmond to Windsor in Berkshire (1966–67) to Sunbury in Surrey. (1968) and then Plumpton (1969-1970). At the time, there was almost no jazz concert, and the festival featured a mix of progressive rock, folk and blues, attracting crowds of around 30,000.
In 1971 the festival finally found a permanent home and Pdleton moved to Reading. The move also marked the beginning of a more eclectic mix of music that was a hallmark of the festival. In 1971, the festival became the “National Jazz, Blues and Rock Festival” and began to mutate into a hard rock festival. Although George Melly and John McLaughlin participated in those years, it was bands like Hawkwind, Thin Lizzy and Rory Gallagher that drew the crowds.
