The Llandudno Jazz Festival will this year feature the UK's top female jazz singer.

The seven time British Jazz Award winner Claire Martin was last week announced as the headline for the Saturday night of the festival, which will take place on Bodafon Farm Park on July 27 to 29.

Martin, who is also a BBC Radio 3 presenter, has spent 27 year honing her craft and has become a tour de force on the UK Jazz scene gaining many awards including the seven British Jazz Awards.

Martin will join an already super line up of jazz artists including Art Themen, Alan Skidmore, Sara Oschlag, David Newton, Gilad Atzmon and Alan Barnes.

The festival will again be aiming to highlight a range of talent from North Wales, the UK and across the globe while also including good food and drinks in the Wales' premier seaside capital.
