The town attracts jazz fans from near and far, from Cheshire, the north west, Staffordshire and Shropshire to Scotland, Oxford and Kent.
Saturday featured a free afternoon rhythm and blues concert on Nantwich Square, and one of the highlights of the festival for Mr Martin was Swinging at The Cotton Club, which recreated the music, dance and songs of the famous New York nightclub.
TALENTED young guitarist Callum Wright had the crowd on their feet on Friday night with his performance of a top track by Avicci.
The 15-year-old Brine Leas School student won the chance to appear at the Nantwich Jazz Blues and Music Festival after entering a competition run by the Guardian.
Callum, from Nantwich, opened the show at a marquee at The White Horse pub in the town centre, and performed 14 numbers for the audience, which included his parents Helen and Paul and 10-year-old sister Melissa.
“Callum had a fantastic reaction from the crowd, and got everyone dancing with Wake Me Up by Avicci,” said Helen.
“Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and were cheering – we were really proud of him.”
Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran, Times Like These by The Foo Fighters and Half The World Away by Oasis were among the numbers performed during his 45-minute slot by Callum, a regular at open acoustic nights locally and across the north west.
“Callum mainly performs covers, and is in the process of writing his own material,” added Helen.
Callum is due to perform this Saturday at The Hawk Inn at Haslington.
