Jazz in de Gracht ..... Jazz on the canal

One of the highlights of the late summer in The Hague is the 'Jazz in de Gracht' festival, now in its 9th year.
The weather was good enough this year for the crowds to chill along the canal dipping into some fine places to eat and drink along the way.

Above are Remmelt, Muus and Femke  who offered great vocals with a rich folk sound.

One of the highlights of the evening were Blood, Sweat and Kiers who encouraged the crowds to join in with their unrelenting rhythm and the sax sounds of Wouter Kiers.

 This autumn rolls on the the forthcoming MuseumNight in The Hague next Saturday 7th September. This is the second jewel in the city.
This is the night when many of the museums and hotels in the city throw open their doors until the early hours of Sunday morning. There will be transport between venues for those note brave enough to cycle...

The Hague - city of Peace. 
September will also this year see the Peace Palace celebrating the centenary of its presence in the city.
