To make this possible, the crème de la crème of the Scottish jazz music scene have travelled to Islay to record a number of one-off concerts in the unique setting of Lagavulin’s Malt Mill for this 2021 Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival.

The Festival’s uncompromisingly high-quality artistic jazz programme will present a showcase of new and exciting artists in the Scottish scene, such as well established Islay Jazz Festival favourites like Mario Caribe, Brian Kellock, Fergus McCreadie, Colin Steele, Konrad Wiszniewski and John Burgess.   Matt Carmichael and Norman Willmore will headline Islay shows for the first time, and guitarist, Jim Mullen will be flying in to revive Robert Burns’ music alongside pianist Dave Milligan.
