Emerging Artist Programme

Leeds College of Music, together with NJP (formerly NorVol Jazz) network, organised six jazz groups in an emerging artist programme that took place during April and May 2019. We have agreed to run another programme with the College in April and May 2020. If you would like to book one of these bands – say as a support band, or to fill a gap in your programme in the near future, do get in touch.
