We asked jazz promoters in the north for their reflections on the past year - and especially those bits that had offered those rare commodities - fun and inspiration! This is from Olivia Cameron, who runs the concert series at Kings Hall, Newcastle University
"fun = interacting with musicians to make recordings, still being able to work with colleagues in this musical making capacity
inspiring = seeing others get to grips with technology, and being inspired to do the same. that's been a challenge, but certainly a positive one
Hearing audience's reactions has inspired me to keep going with offering virtual 'concerts' for them, and also being able to support musicians financially."
