Applications now open for Northern Line scheme
Jazz North are now accepting applications from ensembles to take part in their flagship initiative , Northern Line.
A number of groups are selected by a panel of judges and are then invited to take part. When featured in the artist roster, ensembles can be booked by promoters at a subsidised rate. They are also supported by Jazz North who provide them with a photo shoot and promo video. Each year, a showcase event takes place at Manchester Jazz Festival - a whole day of performances by each featured ensemble.
Now in its 5th round, so far the scheme has supported 47 groups to perform 450 gigs at over 150 venues.
Applications will be accepted until 10pm on Monday 12th December 2016.
