It is with great regret that the 2016 Inverness Jazz Festival will now be hosting only 1 event and that will be the Fun Jazz Cruise on Loch Ness listening to the Ness River Rythym Kings.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused but we do look forward to see you on the Cruise and if you stick with us...we promise to work even harder to make this event work in 2017

Yeaahhh... We're all going on a Jazz Cruise

Our Loch Ness Jazz cruise will take you on a musical journey of musical discovery, as you soak up the scenery surrounding our mysterious monster and the Caledonian Canal in the heart of Scotland's Great Glen. For your pleasure, playing live onboard will be the Ness River Rythm Kings. Promises to be quite a trip 🙂

Departure is from Dochgarroch Locks at 6.00pm

Loch Ness Jazz Cruise

A fun Cruise on Loch Ness listening to the sounds of the Ness River Rythym Kings, Leaving from Dochgarroch.

The Scottish Highlands has a long and rich heritage of music, not least in jazz. There are jazz bands and jazz clubs throughout the Highlands and we were very fortunate for a long time in having, firstly, the Inverness Platform Jazz club with many distinguished players, and then the outstanding Nairn International Jazz Festival , all on our doorstep. However, there has been no festival since 2009 although there are now very active jazz clubs in Nairn and Elgin with events throughout the year.
