A very quick excuse for a blog.
Firstly a massive thanks to Ian, Caspar, Maitland and the whole family and team at Atkinsons (@coffeehopper) and The Hall for helping us with the brilliant first Lancaster Jazz Club on friday. Thanks to everyone that made it a full house to watch the awesome Stuart McCallum (@stuart_mccallum), Peter Turner and Dave Walsh and to Jazz North who helped us afford it. Here’s to many more. (Photos on the way…)
Secondly thanks to all the artists that have sent us things over the last 2 months - we’ve been swamped with stuff and that’s fantastic. We’re sitting down from today to listen to all of it and to programme the festival - we’ll let you know how it goes asap. If you’re really interested in how it’s all going we’re going to try and do updates on twitter (we’ll see) (@lancasterjazz, @mrobinsonjazz, @bigdavethebass)
Here’s to a highly caffeinated Easter
Oh and if you haven't signed up to our very fancy new mailing list do it!
And hello and massive thanks to Lancaster Brewery who are sponsoring the Lancaster Jazz Festival 2013. (We've got some very exciting plans!).
Matt Robinson - Festival Director
