We close the festival with a dedication to the memory of John Hughes who founded this wonderful big band some forty years ago. They are no strangers to the festival with their awesome big, brassy sound and rock infused rhythm section.
They play the compositions of Pat Methany, Chick Corea plus compositions written by band members Tim Amann and Nick Dewhurst.
WJO founder and leader John Hughes died peacefully on Monday 18th March 2019, at home with his wife and daughters at his side, after a brave eight-year battle with cancer. He was 78.
