Wellington and Festival favourites The Troubles return.

The Troubles are one of this country’s most engaging and exciting jazz bands and a regular Festival highlight. From the coarse to the sublime, the emotive to the absurd, their music is inventive, passionate, honest, and wholly life-affirming. The Troubles are a standout group that stretches beyond what most would think of a jazz ensemble. Featuring saxophones, trumpets, bass and drums, alongside flute, clarinet, violin, viola and cello. This is an unmissable concert for festival-goers and a rare opportunity to catch this iconic ensemble.
