Brecon Jazz 2013: Acker Bilk
Brecon Jazz Festival is a music festival held on an annual basis in the rural surroundings of Brecon, in south Powys, Mid Wales.
It plays host to a range of jazz musicians who travel from across the world to take part and to many visiting tourists who are attracted by the music, the social scene and the other leisure opportunities on offer in and around the Brecon Beacons.

With a career spanning four decades, clarinettist Acker Bilk from Pensford in Somerset helped to popularise traditional jazz, introducing a whole generation to music that had previously been the preserve of the beatnik generation and the American New Orleans and Chicago jazz scenes. With a string of hits in the early 1960s, Acker famously topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with his composition 'Stranger on the Shore'.
