We’re inviting expressions of interest from festivals, venues and promoters based in the North of England who would like to be the delivery partner for the 2019 edition of the northern line showcase.
Deadline for EOI: 06/08/2018
northern line is Jazz North’s flagship scheme to support touring across the North of England. The scheme offers a subsidy towards the artist fees for a selected roster of musicians therefore reducing the financial risk to promoters and encouraging more jazz performances across the region.
For the last 6 years, the annual showcase has presented the latest selection of artists to join the northern line roster in a day-long celebration of high quality and diverse talent. The event offers an open invitation for jazz audiences, alongside promoters and programmers from across the UK to visit, sample the music and learn first-hand about the artists on the scheme.
The showcase has been presented in partnership with manchester jazz festival for the last 5 years and, with their support, has become a key event in the Jazz North calendar. We now want to reimagine what the showcase might look like going forward, and we are looking for proposals for host partners from 2019 onwards.
