Jazz North Introduces Scheme

Jazz North Introduces scheme is open for applications now and is inviting musicians under 25 to apply for the chance to secure a high-profile festival appearance.

Selected musicians will receive -

  • a high profile performance opportunity at a leading jazz festival
  • The gigs will be paid and expenses will be covered
  • Photo shoot for the band
  • Video showreel for the band created from interviews and this performance
  • Help with producing EPK (Electronic Press Kit)
 Jazz North says...

Jazz North Introduces is a new scheme that will provide young northern jazz artists with their first high-profile performance. This initiative builds on the mjf introduces scheme to showcase the very best new jazz talent from across the north. A pilot version of the scheme was run earlier this year with Leeds’ band The Stretch Trio being selected for a showcase at Gateshead International Jazz Festival. Jazz North will showcase the Introduces programme at selected jazz festivals across the North during 2014/15.

Submissions are being accepted until June 16th and the online application form can be found on the Jazz North website.
