Now in its 9th year, this year's Festival promises to be a long weekend of live music with some great headline bands such as The Jive Aces and Jazz Connection.
The programme also includes a jazz cruise at Loch Katrine on Sunday 5th October. Relax with a drink or a snack and enjoy the majestic scenery that inspired Sir Walter Scott to write his famous poem "Lady of the Lake" on board the Sir Walter Scott. The Jazz Cruise lasts for 2 hours. Sailing time is 3pm from Loch Katrine Pier in the Trossachs.
The musicians taking part in this year's festival event have been carefully selected so that visitors to the event can enjoy more or less every style of live Jazz and Blues Music.
Some of this year's performers are making their debut, others have been invited back by popular demand, but they all have a single aim and that is to provide you with a feast of live musical entertainment.
From solo artists to 21 piece big bands and everything in between with over three hundred musicians that will ensure a long weekend of great music here in the autumn splendour of the Trossachs.

The Callander Jazz and Blues Festival will be taking place right in the heart of our central Scotland area and would make a pleasant visitor attraction for those staying in one of Cooper Cottages self-catering holiday cottages. If you are a fan of Jazz and Blues music why not make this a festival to visit.
