Leeds Musicians head to Montreal
Recently we published an article about the Montreal Jazz Festival and their BBC Introducing scheme. Jamie Cullum was leading the charge to select artists to be featured at this international festival. The three acts that were chosen have now been announced and Leeds will be well represented by singer/songwriter Malaika Shaw.
Ireland-born and now Leeds based, Malaika will appear with her group featuring LCoM alumni Jack Chandler, Dan Hudson and Leon Johnson. Also chosen to take part in the scheme were Mammal Hands (featuring Nick Smart, Jesse Barrett and Jordan Smart) and the Peter Edwards trio featuring Moses Boyd and Max Luthert.
You can find out more about Malaika through her facebook page and youtube channel.
Congratulations to all artists selected and we wish them good luck in Montreal!
