Jazz North northern line open for applications

It’s that time of year again and Jazz North has now opened the application portal to recruit the next round of northern artists for our northern line scheme.  Thanks to the help of our partners last year, applications for the 2017 round were double that of previous years. We would like to make sure that awareness of this initiative continues to grow so, once again, we are approaching our friends and sector colleagues to help direct talented musicians our way. 
Since its launch in 2013, northern line has featured 58 Ambassador Artists who have performed over 550 gigs with approximately 150 promoters and partners across the north of England and beyond.  As in previous years, northern line Round 6 will be selected by an independent panel of musicians, promoters and industry experts. Artists selected for the scheme will benefit from subsidised performance fees, on-going professional development support and will perform at our showcase day at Manchester Jazz Festival in July 2018. 
It is very important to us that the Northern Line roster represents the diversity of our region and we are looking to raise awareness and encourage applications from northern based artists who may not ordinarily be aware of the scheme.  We are particularly keen to receive applications from talented women and musicians from diverse ethnic backgrounds, both of whom are woefully underrepresented in the jazz sector.
