Southampton Music Hub and Hampshire Music Hub are celebrating winning a prestigious national award for their commitment to jazz education. The Will Michael Award for Jazz Education is presented yearly by UK Jazz Services to recognize excellence and outstanding commitment to young jazz musicians.

Provision for young jazzers in the region has reached an all-time high due to significant investment and a string of exciting initiatives. Alongside several outstanding youth jazz groups, including the nationally renowned Southampton Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO), young musicians have enjoyed participating in free jazz improvisation workshops, composition masterclasses and working alongside leading professionals including singer Ian Shaw. There has also been a drive to help teach jazz more effectively with support for teachers and better links with experts from the University of Southampton and the Turner Sims Concert Hall.

From one drummer to another…

From one drummer to another…

In this interview, our very own Rowan Jackson interviews his drumming idol, UB40'S Jimmy Brown. Together they discuss the reggae genre, where the band has been, and the future that lies ahead...


Hi Jimmy, let me just introduce myself…

My name’s Rowan Jackson. I’ve been a professional drummer for years. Thank you for taking this opportunity to talk to me.

I use to play with Nine Below Zero, Bonnie Tyler, and other 80’s players back in the day, but I haven’t done it for years now.

You must have been a real player then, to play with those kinds of people?

I wasn’t too bad but I didn’t make my millions from it so I turned to teaching to give something back. I don’t play much now but I still love a bit of drums, love a bit of reggae as well, so it’s a dream come true talking to you!

Adventurers take on monster pedalo challenge

Four adventurers are preparing to take on a monster challenge - in a pedalo shaped like the Loch Ness monster.

Ed Foster, Nico Kirby, his sister Natasha Kirby and Sholto Morgan will take the vessel, which has been designed by students from the University of Southampton, out onto the open seas this weekend to pedal round the treacherous north coast of Scotland.

The 500-mile journey will be the first attempt to circumnavigate the northern tip of Scotland by pedalo and it encompasses some of the most dangerous waters in the UK.

The six-metre long pedalo has been purpose-built by six Ship Science MEng students from the University of Southampton, over a period of seven months, to withstand the conditions. A support boat will follow them in case of an emergency.
