On Friday September 13 2019 our northern line showcase will be live streamed via a network of Live Stream Partners including Jazzwise direct from the outdoor stage at Lancaster Jazz Festival. This new network, with partners who share our aim to support northern and UK jazz scene, will increase the online reach and audience for the artists taking part. The live stream will last for 8 hours filmed with a multi-camera video team and hosted by J Frisco guitarist Megan Roe. This showcase will feature seven artists from the latest round of northern line: Beyond Albedo, freesetrio (now Jemma Freese), John Pope Quintet, Nishla Smith Quintet, Not Now Charlie, Rafe’s Dilemma, and SogoRock.
We are pleased to announce that the UK’s best selling jazz magazine Jazzwise will be joining this new initiative as our Live Stream Media Partner. Jazzwise Magazine Editor Mike Flynn says:
“Jazzwise is pleased to join forces with Jazz North for a packed weekend of exciting live performances that take place as part of the Jazz North’s northern Line showcase at Lancashire Jazz Festival. Reflecting the new wave of young jazz talent that’s now exploding out of the UK, see some of the stars of tomorrow playing sets across weekend on the Jazzwise Facebook page.”
Jazz North Creative Director Nigel Slee says:
“We plan to use this new digital partnership network to stream future events that support and promote the dynamic northern jazz scene. New partners are welcome”.
