Wakefield Jazz Update March 2021

We are currently monitoring the latest government guidelines to know when we can start up the jazz again. In the meantime, keep an eye on the website, register for the email newsletter, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch.

There’s lots of jazz on BBC iPlayer at the moment, and you can search out jazz musicians on YouTube and Bandcamp, and check our ‘helping musicians’ link below, where you can support them at a difficult time. Among the musicians we’ve missed out on in the last nine months:

Rosie Brown/Jamie Taylor; Art Themen; Ben Crosland; Tango Siempre; Pete Oxley/Nicolas Meier; Jeff Williams; Shirley Smart; Irene Serra; Mark Lockheart; Sue Rynhart; Huw Warren; Hot Club of Jupiter; Vein/Stan Sulzmann; Veryan Weston; Dave Newton; Liz Fletcher; Tina May; Nikki Iles
Check them out!

And meanwhile, thank you again to all audience, volunteers and musicians for your ongoing support. We will return.
