We are sad to announce that we will soon be saying goodbye to Lucy Woolley, our Artist Development Programme Manager, who is leaving Jazz North in October to take on new challenges and concentrate on her roles at Jazz Promotion Network and Lancaster Jazz Festival.
Lucy has been a valuable member of the team since 2013 and has played a key role in shaping and delivering the Jazz North northern line and Introduces programmes, providing valuable support and guidance to musicians and promoters across the north of England. Her understanding of musicians and their needs led to the development of the annual Artist Networking Day that we deliver in partnership with Lancaster Jazz Festival and has also helped us to develop new support activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Whilst we are sorry to lose her, we know that she has a great future in front of her and in a sector as small as ours, we look forward to bumping into her regularly and hopefully working with her again soon.
Good luck Lucy!
Lesley Jackson – Chief Executive
