Jazz from Scotland Home

Welcome to the Jazz from Scotland website.


Jazz from Scotland has been created for Jazzahead! the international music trade fair with integrated showcase which takes place in Bremen which takes place from Thursday 21st April to Sunday 24th April 2016. We will be hosting a stand focusing on the Scottish Jazz sector and aim to create an information hub for those interested in finding out more about the scene here in Scotland.


Last year we worked in partnership with Glasgow International Jazz Festival and Glasgow UNESCO City of Music to host the stand and create a Scottish Jazz Music Download Sampler featuring ten great Scottish Artists, will be used in conjunction with our Soundcloud site to promote tour ready Scottish artists. At Jazzahead 2015, we had interest from over 70 delegates in either working with Scottish Artists or interested in finding out more about the Scottish Jazz sector. The website has had over 4000 individual visits in the past 12 months. Glow Arts attended Showcase Scotland Expo’s ‘The Visit’ which brought 40 French and International delegates to Glasgow last May and Womex in Budapest, promoting the Jazz from Scotland download card and online resources.


This website provides information on current Scottish musicians and bands that are looking to tour, Scottish festivals, and promoters that book local and international artists and other useful organisations that support the Scottish Jazz sector.


If you are a musician or organisation in Scotland that would like to be included on the Jazz from Scotland website, then please get in touch with biography, photo/ logo and link to your website and we’ll upload it as soon as we can. Email: admin@jazzfromscotland.com

We are delighted to have colleagues from Glasgow International Jazz Festival, Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, Scottish Music Centre and Scottish Jazz Federation in attendance.
