The Blue Lamp

Jazz at the Blue Lamp is a group of jazz fans from Aberdeen who came together to present the best of jazz from Scotland, the UK and around the world. The work is all done on a voluntary basis and is supported by Jazz Scotland, Creative Scotland and other bodies who we can be persuaded to help us.

The Blue Lamp has been the venue for some great concerts since Jazz Aberdeen started promoting jazz in 2002 and this work has been continued by us since 2011. The Blue Lamp is considered by many as one of the finest jazz venues in the UK both for its wonderful, friendly atmosphere and its natural sound enhanced by a first rate sound system originally installed with help from the Scottish Arts Council (later changed to Creative Scotland)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
