New Roster of Jazz North Northern Line Artists Announced
Jazz North have announced the 10 newest Northern Line groups to take part in their flagship scheme to promote the best of jazz in the North.
Now in its third season, Northern Line selects groups to take part in the scheme for a period of just over a year, offering the groups to promoters at a subsidised rate to support both promoters and artists in furthering the art-form.
Artists are selected by a panel of musicians, industry professionals and promoters. Since 2013, the scheme has supported 37 artists and has seen them perform over 400 gigs with 130 promoters.
The groups selected to be this year's Northern Line Ambassador Artists are -
Johnny Hunter Quartet
Maja Bugge solo
The Jamie Brownfield Quartet
Pat McCarthy Quartet ft Shannon Reilly
Tom Riviere's Family Band
