Edinburgh has more than just the Edinburgh International Festival. In the period from the last week of July, through to the first week in September, it is the Edinburgh Festival season. The Edinburgh festival season kicks of with the following festivals... The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, The Edinburgh Interactive Entertainment Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The International Festival, The Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Edinburgh International Book Festival, The Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival.
One of the most popular events of the entire Edinburgh festival period is the annual parade featuring many of the Edinburgh festival performers along Princes Street and through the centre of the city and this year Edinburgh Festival's Cavalcade is on Sunday 10th August, 2007.

The Edinburgh Jazz Festival Mardi Gras

Edinburgh Castle visited the Edinburgh Jazz Festival's free Mardi Gras parade today and spoke to some of the performers. The Mardi Gras was a vibrant musical spectacular with a colourful parade starting at 12:30 from the City Chambers via Victoria Street to the Grassmarket with non-stop music from many artists. Some of the highlights were Ginger Pig, a 10 piece New Orleans Jazz/Rock 'n' Roll group from Northampton, Rev Doc and the Congregation, a 4 piece Glasgow based Chicago Style Blues Band, Brass Impact, an 18 piece jazz orchestra playing jazz from the big band era of the 30s and 40s. Edinburgh's own Edith Budge appeared with their interesting gospel/blues/mainstream jazz sound and really got the crowd going with a raunchy performance of Boom Boom Boom Boom. Red Hot Reedwarmers from Burgundy, France also appeared and the 10th Avenue Band, a talented 6 piece jazz group from San José, California, USA were playing a mix of modern and traditional jazz. Among others in the parade were Bill Salmond's Louisiana Ragtime Band, Criterion New Orleans Parade Band, Honestas New Orleans Parade Bands, The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force Steel Orchestra and many more.
Speaking to Rev. and the Congregation, I talked to the Rev himself who said he was most defiantly excited to be appearing in Edinburgh and was looking forward to next Friday's performance in the Spiegletent at 8 pm. I told him the best thing I saw last year was La Clique and his comment was, "wait till you see us"! The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force Orchestra are glad to be back again in Edinburgh for the third time, having appeared in both 1997 and 2000. The Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force Orchestra are an exciting 55 piece military orchestra, including 11 girls, all with infantry training drawn from both Navy and Army personnel.
