Opportunity to play with Indian musicians in Bradford 20th October 2016

We’re setting up a partnership with Kala Sangam in Bradford. Kala Sangam promote and deliver south Asian and interdisciplinary arts (dance, music, visual arts, crafts and literature) through a creative, collaborative, innovative and accessible programme of work.

There’s an opportunity to jam with fretless lute player Ravikiran at a concert in Bradford on 20th October. The first half of the concert will feature Ravikiran with south Asian percussionists and the second half is dedicated to a performance with jazz musicians.
Most likely this will involve a daytime rehearsal and as a minimum we will be able to offer travel expenses. If you’re interested then let me know.

Opportunity to network with Dutch artists at Bimhuis, Amsterdam 7-9 October 2016

Unfortunately this isn’t a playing opportunity but we can offer ONE travel bursary of £250 to support a northern line artist to go to Amsterdam and the Bimhuis venue 7, 8 and 9 October 2016 to attend out their ‘October Meeting’. This is a Friday – Sunday get-together of twenty-two young improvisors of the Dutch scene and those of surrounding countries. We’d hoped they’d invite a northern musician but not this time…

So while you’re not invited to take part as a performer this is an opportunity to check out the Dutch improvising scene and network with the artists. Don’t forget also the opportunity to network with a large group of UK promoters who will be there too on a trip organised by The Jazz Promotion Network. The Dutch Performing Arts will provide a guest pass so you can attend all the performances.

If you’re interested then contact me ASAP.
I was in Amsterdam recently and can give tips on accommodation and travel from airport to city and Bimhuis. Nigel
