We are winding down operations

Jazz from Scotland (JfS) is now no longer operating as an organisation. This decision has been carefully made by the board in response to the changing needs of the jazz sector in Scotland. We would like to thank everyone in the jazz and wider music community for their support and engagement during our years of operation, both as Jazz from Scotland and formerly as the Scottish Jazz Federation

As a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC043990) JfS has served to advance arts, culture and education in jazz both in Scotland and on the international scene. JfS has represented Scottish jazz both at home and across the wider UK and international sectors and we are delighted that we have been able to showcase such a rich diversity of talent in this time. This has included supporting the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year events, a major conference Stand Out! in Glasgow in collaboration with the Jazz Promotion Network, being an active member of the Europe Jazz Network, as well as building a Scottish presence at the annual international jazzahead! trade fair in Bremen and supporting Scottish musicians to attend the event.

We are very grateful to Creative Scotland for the support they have given JfS and will undoubtedly continue to give the jazz sector in Scotland. It has been a privilege to provide a voice for Scottish jazz.
