Serious Livestream Sessions 1 - 10

We’ve been hosting livestreams over on our Facebook and YouTube pages; from album launches to live event replacements and beyond, doing our bit to keep the music scene alive.

Serious Livestream Sessions have been picked up by BBC1, reviewed by Songlines, and been watched by arena-sized audiences with viewing figures growing still. We’ve joined forces with Royal Albert Hall's #RoyalAlbertHome, National Concert Hall Dublin, Edition Records, Crammed Discs, and more to bring our series to audiences across the globe.

We're taking a break over the Summer (although we may still do the occasional collaboration with international festivals and partners). Expect more films and livestreams when we launch the EFG London Jazz Festival in September.

But don't fret! We've kept our 10 lockdown streams up and available for you to continue to enjoy. Join us in a trip down our memory lane of jazz, electronica, RnB, folk, blues, Americana, ambient and international flavours below.
