The Legend of Avalon
Nestled in the rolling hills and marshlands of Somerset, England there exists a mythical place.
It’s called Avalon.
Avalon is a place, rich in tradition and mystery
Through the ages, many have written of it, but no one knows the truth.
Legend has it that Avalon was cared for and protected by the Priestesses
of the Goddess and ruled by the Lady of Avalon
Did Avalon exist?
Does it still?
Where is it?
What is it?
No one knows , though the legend still abounds
In all likelihood, Avalon will always remain a mystery.
The Legends of Jazz
Out of this mythical tale, Avalon Radio has been created, not to honour the Legends of Myth, but the Legends of Jazz and Contemporary music.
Listed on this page are some of the Legends of Jazz that have influenced the growth of Jazz and Contemporary music all over the world and who will be featured on Avalon Radio.
You will hear these Legends, as well as up and coming artists, recorded and performed in concert conditions, representing a true reflection of what the art form is all about –the ultimate musical medium for improvisation.
Avalon Radio will offer a different musical experience, taking the listener into the environment of live performances, “as it‘s happening”, so to speak.
We invite you to take this journey with us, and ask for your support……….
