Reminder! Voting Stage Parliamentary Jazz Awards Ends 31 March
No getting around it - these are the toughest times our industry has ever faced and we’re all reeling from the fresh shock of losing our livelihoods virtually overnight with gigs being cancelled up and down the country. However even in these early days we’re already witnessing the budding of creative solutions using technology to stream gigs and other clever online endeavours.
Usefully we jazz people are amongst the most adaptable of our species as life mirrors art and we improvise our way through - we’re uniquely qualified to weather the storm.
The one important event on the jazz calendar that definitely won’t be cancelled is this country’s foremost celebration of our industry - The Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
The Parliamentary Awards celebrate and recognise the vibrancy, diversity, talent and breadth of the jazz scene throughout the United Kingdom. Organised by the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group (APPJAG) is co-chaired by John Spellar MP and Lord Mann and supported by PizzaExpress Live.
