Herne Hill Music Fest WEEKEND RECAP! The Secular, the Sacred & everything-in-between!


We're working on a Festival Music Trail! Progress so far:


The Festival got off to a flying start on Friday at a sold-out Prince Regent with Django jazz from locals The Crispy Hot Club followed by ace blues stalwarts Steve Morrison and Alan Glen.



Saturday a super busy day - Fest's busiest - beginning with The Calton String Quartet at the Carnegie Library in Herne Hill Road for string classics at lunchtime and snacks laid on by Carnegie Friends.

Herne Hill Sunday Market News & Trader Tales ... for Oct 14th!

We had another couple of entertaining sets from Jazz Union (aka Ingham Swing Ensemble) at Jazz On The Hill for Sunday lunchtime, which actually filled up a lot just as the market was wrapping! A later start than usual but very nice once it got going. Great hearing some of the traders ask "where is the music!?"



Especially Elaine the Flower Lady who in the pic below says I LOVE HERNE HILL! Please notice her 100+ year old family flower cart which sits just outside the shop. She started out in London on it! The Flower Lady comes from a long family line of florists, originally hailing from Portsmouth.

Jazz On The Hill is again hosting Sunday lunchtime jazz from 1:30 pm in support of the ongoing Herne Hill Music Festival and the Herne Hill Sunday Market. Featuring Jazz Union (aka Ingham Swing Ensemble). Good crowd on hand last weekend, so come for a bit of swing jazz while you're shopping - warm up, take a load off your feet! There'll be Festival programmes on hand and other information too.
