And the new Northern Line bands are...

Nicola Farnon

Jazz North announced the names of artists who will be joining their Round 2 of the northern line roster on stage at The Liverpool Jazz Festival today (1-3-14). Northern line is Jazz North’s innovative scheme for supporting touring for northern jazz musicians across the north of England.

The scheme aims to encourage new or cautious promoters to book selected northern artists by reducing the financial risk. In the first year of the scheme 39 promoters booked northern line bands resulting in 90 gigs. This included a tour of rural village halls by Newcastle based band Djangologie in partnership with Highlight productions and Way Out West. The new roster artists are available for booking immediately.
