The Wigan International Jazz Festival loses one of its major artists
Due to the cancellation of German and French festivals, European tour organizers have had to cancel American singer and saxophonist Camille Thurman’s summer tour which was due to perform in Wigan on Saturday July 9.
Festival director Ian Darrington said: “Obviously it’s hugely disappointing to lose a star performer, especially so late in the day, but we’ve been able to book a very exciting replacement band called TRYPL and we’re through. one that the festival audience will be. really enjoy.

TRYPL are a UK based Latin jazz band, co-founded by the horn section consisting of Trevor Mires (trombone) and Ryan Quigley (trumpet).
These always-in-demand musicians have had the pleasure of making many recordings and performing together as a brass section.
They spent most of their formative years as professional musicians touring and recording with many top salsa, boogaloo and merengue bands, in the UK and around the world.
This, combined with their love for the Latin jazz idiom, gave birth to the fast, high impact and groovy seed now known as TRYPL.
Their self-titled debut album has just been released on the Ubuntu Music label.
Their professional credentials read like the Who’s Who of today’s music.
Tickets for the Camille Thurman concert will be valid for the TRYPL concert or, if preferred, refunds can be claimed by individual ticket holders through the Just Add Tickets box office.
The jazz festival runs from July 7-10 at the Village on the Green, Aspull.
