Among many internationally-renowned names appearing at Lynn are guitarist Craig Ogden who will share the stage with vocalist Jacqui Dankworth, Claire Martin and the BBC Big Band, top choral ensemble The Sixteen, pianist Llyr Williams, Alistair McGowan whose career has taken a new path as a pianist, historian and BBC arts presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon, folk singer Eddi Reader and touring band Los Pacaminos with Paul Young.
