What an incredible five days we spent together!

Seven concerts. Nineteen workshops. Forty-seven artists and over 2000 music-lovers from around the world. We are inspired by your love of the music and the artists and the hospitality and generosity of our island community.


We would like to extend special thanks to our Artistic Director Simon Planting for his vision and dedication; the artists for sharing their talents; the artist hosts that laid out the welcome mats and opened their homes to our guests; Anthes Ferments, Pickles Deli, Prima Bistro, The Star Store, Useless Bay Coffee Company, Ultra House, and Village Pizzeria for the delicious meals they prepared for musicians; and the extraordinary volunteers for taking such good care of us during the festival.

No thanks would be complete without mentioning our incredible sponsors KCTS 9, the City of Langley, Country Cottage of Langley, DjangoBooks.com, Django Guitars USA, The Inn at Langley, Island County, John Pearse Strings, Saga Music, Whidbey-Seatac Shuttle, and our generous individual donors.

Thank you for all that you do every day to support and nurture the music and our Gypsy Jazz community. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
