- Fans who are interested in making a contribution to the festival to help offset the operating expenses are most welcome to do so.

- Thanks to the generosity of a number of fans last year (2015) we had one of our most successful festivals in years which has allowed us to continue.

- Let’s keep jazz and ragtime going.
