Jazz Services are helping me tour!

I am touring with my quartet again in November and I am very happy that Jazz Services are able to help me with it!  For those of you who don’t know, Jazz Services is an invaluable charitable support organisation for Jazz music, promoting its growth and development and offering services on touring, recording, information, international support, education and communications, publishing and promotion; they do so much for the UK Jazz scene by helping musicians, promoters and audiences across the country.  Unfortunately, they have recently found out that they will not be receiving any more funding from Arts Council England after March 2015.  This is devastating news for the Jazz community as the comparatively tiny amount of money made such a huge difference for many musicians and promoters who are trying to keep music live.  Please sign the petition here, and there is also a Facebook group that you should “like”.
