Winner of this year's competition
The Scottish Jazz Federation have announced the eighth annual Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year Competition.
Applicants start with an audio audition before ten semi-finalists are chosen. They then advance to a mentoring weekend, participating in workshops before playing in a concert. The top five players are selected by a panel of judges after this and will go through to the final, held in Glasgow on July 25th (part of the Glasgow Jazz Festival), broadcast live on BBC Radio Scotland.
The winner receives a £1000 cash prize (and £1000 towards a demo recording), a six venue tour of Scotland, airplay on BBC Scotland, and performances at the Glasgow and London Jazz Festivals 2015. There will also be a concert featuring a selection of the previous winners; date and time TBC.
