The popular Summer of Live Music returns 

Our popular Summer of Live Music returns in May when live music will be performed every weekend until September.

Taking place between 2pm and 4.30pm every Saturday and Sunday, the 2023 eclectic line-up features soulful vibes, smooth jazz, swinging classics, and much more from extremely talented local and nationwide musicians.

Kicking things off on Saturday 6th May is Fusion Inusual who are fronted by the amazing Sophie Henderson and will be entertaining visitors with classics from Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Pharrell Williams and Earth, Wind and Fire.

The launch weekend continues on Sunday 7th May with a special King Charles Coronation event, when live music will take place between 2pm and 8pm before a DJ keeps the party atmosphere going until 10pm. The Langsett Dance Orchestra, Shane Durrant, Phil Johnson and The Swing Commanders will be performing throughout the day.

On Saturday 13th May, the dapper and debonair Leeds City Stompers will be playing vintage blues, ragtime, swing and folk music. Visitors will then be able to get their dancing shoes on when the ever-popular Lindsay Dracass is welcomed on Sunday 14th.

Nicola Farnon and her sparkling jazz vocals make a very welcome return on Saturday 20th May, before King Zepha brings raucous four-part harmonies, honking horns and thumping double bass on Sunday 21st.

The final weekend in May sees Billie Johnson perform music that grooves from the likes of Silk Sonic, Santana, Jill Scott and D'Angelo on Saturday 27th May, and Sheffield's favourite gypsy jazz ensemble Jazz Hot Six will get guests dancing on Sunday 28th.

Our Summer of Live Music has become a mainstay of the Sheffield music calendar, and we're delighted to once again be welcoming some of the finest musicians from our region and across the UK. If you're a lover of jazz, soul, funk, blues and swing music, our upcoming entertainment is something not to be missed.
