Review Date February 13, 2013 Review By Nick Dalton Location Slaughtered Lamb, London It was like the dress-down reception after the wedding, a warm pub cellar bar with plenty of sofas and plenty of friends all having a good time.

The 21st Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival

Review Date September 13-18, 2011 Review By Eric Thom Location Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada There’s not a business-savvy festival anywhere who won’t claim its hard-earned exclusivity to “uniqueness’ but precious few own the bragging rights to actually doing more than processing a large number of musical acts to as many people as possible.
