If you are a Northern Jazz promoter you should already have had a personal invitation to come to Manchester to listen to 12 artists in 10 hours... Make sure someone from your venue comes along!
Monday 3rd August is Jazz North’s Northern Line showcase*** day at Manchester Jazz Festival where you can experience the full and varied range of wonderful music from the artists on the third round of this scheme.
- Four central venues- Thwaites Festival Pavilion in Albert Square (next to the Town Hall), Manchester Central Library (in St Peter’s Square), St Ann’s Church (in St Ann’s Square) and Matt & Phred’s Jazz Club (in the Northern Quarter).
- First performances start at 12:00 pm (The Lindsay Hannon Plus)
- Last performance 9:45 pm (Bugalu Foundation)
- Each gig is free for you to attend
- All the venues are within easy walking distance
Special reward for the promoter who manages to attend all 12 gigs! (it was John Taylor from Ashington Jazz Club last year...)
There is also a VIP reception at Matt and Phreds where you can meet the Jazz North Team and the bandleaders and see one of the bands- the Blind Monk Trio
Travel and accommodation bursaries may be available. Please contact Lucy Woolley if you wish to come along! Lucy Woolley <firstname.lastname@example.org>
