There is music in the air and it’s all that jazz…

As a student in Hull one of my favourite haunts was The Sailmakers Arms as they hosted a weekly Jaz night (which also included a quiz and free chips, both staples of a film student’s life). Each week I, along with an ever-changing assortment of friends, acquaintances and drinking buddies would descend on the pub, before heading to the live music area upstairs. There we would drink and listen to an eclectic mix of the good, the great and the questionable as they played original songs and Jazz classics. It is, and always will be, one of my lasting memories of being a student in Hull and helped to solidify my love of Jazz.

A huge creative leap of faith…

There are more than a few artists who have used the increased attention on Hull in 2017 as a platform to launch their own artistic careers. They have taken the initiative and taken, what is in many cases, a huge leap of faith and decided to put their art out into the world for all to see. Anyone taking this step deserves credit for simply trying. If they then go on to forge a career as an artist and make a living doing something they love, they are to be applauded. I have been able to meet dozens of artists this year, through various projects I’ve been involved with, who have taken this step. Some of these have been shocked to discover that the journey is far from easy. Those who have gone in with their eyes wide open however, have been able to carve out their own places in the City of Culture, and further afield.
