From Lucy Woolley from Jazz North/ Festival Manager of Lancaster Jazz Festival
Here are my three highlights -
Jazz North’s northern line Showcase day at Lancaster Jazz Festival is always one on my personal highlights - an opportunity to get artists and promoters together and celebrate the quality and variety of the jazz scene across the North!
My second highlight is the Camilla George performance at Lancaster Jazz Festival this year, a sell out performance that had the audience enthralled for the whole evening!
Finally, I would like to highlight the achievements of Skeltr and Emma Johnson's Gravy Boat, two artists I have worked closely with this year, on receiving awards from Peter Whittingham. Both stand out examples of the quality and creativity of Jazz in the North of England!
