Alyn Shipton will record a special edition of BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Record Requests. Artists from the festival, including Tim Garland, Gwilym Simcock and Zoe Rahman, will discuss their own favourites, and offer a chance for you to make your request in person and live on the radio.
If you have a request that you’d like to hear, or if there is a specific piece of music you’d like them to play in person, then do email the programme directly and they’ll do their best to ask the artists to include it. firstname.lastname@example.org.
