| On 6 September 2013 Leiden was filled with jazz music from the Smallbands Festival BIGGG. There were 40 mini concerts on 7 different locations throughout the centre. The concerts were held in the beautiful houses of the Pieterswijk, some even in living rooms. Everybody was welcome, visitors payed a small fee for entrance and drinks. The artists were enthusiastic, they enjoyed the atmosphere and reactions of the public. Between the acts they educated the public about their instrument of repertoire. At the end of the day some acts became a true party, when the public joined with singing or dancing. Bert Louissen could not stop and continued long after the closing time. The festival was a great event.
Hope to see you next year,
Gr Willem KdeJ
