NIGEL PRICE ORGAN TRIO - 2018 TOUR

As some of you may have heard, Nigel Price was unsuccessful in his bid to the Arts Council to help fund an enormous 60 date UK tour this Autumn/Winter. A tour with 8 young support bands, 10 workshops, stretching from Aberdeen to St Ives, in an attempt to provide nationwide education for all, opportunities for the young, keep the tour routes open, and to do what we can to preserve our rich jazz heritage. If karma existed, his bid would have been successful, considering what he did for the Swanage Jazz Festival. But, that’s just not the way these things work.

These Arts Council application forms are TOUGH, so perhaps if he had more time, he could have made a better fist of his submission. Oh well. We are where we are. He has since put in a resubmission, but time restrictions only allow him to put in a smaller bid, meaning he had to drop the September leg of the tour from the resubmitted application. However - THE DATES ARE STILL IN THE DIARY! It would have been soul destroying to take them out, having sweated blood to get them in in the first place. Also, he kinda had no choice but to continue with them, as the work he turned down to do the tour, amounts to thousands of pounds. Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place!

ONLY £2.00 A TICKET!

Anyway, Nigel needed to raise five grand to make this September leg of the tour happen. This may sound like a lot but when you split it between the dates and four people it’s actually less than £80 to help house, feed and transport each person per day. Very reasonable considering what is on offer...the award winning Nigel Price Organ Trio! So, along with Award/ Session amps, we decided to donate a guitar, to an online raffle that has been set up, and is currently running on Facebook. So far, £2.5k has been raised, so half way there! At just £2.00 a ticket, gives you the opportunity to win one of three great prizes. If you feel inclined, you can purchase up to a maximum of 50 tickets.

THREE GREAT PRIZES!

1st Prize – An early prototype Fibonacci archtop guitar. This is a one off, no other exists. It actually could become a bit of a collectors item in the future.

2nd Prize – An Award/Session jazz amplifier, with Nigel’s personal modifications. Essentially, it’s the renowned ‘Blues Baby’ but with darker tone sweeps.

3rd Prize - Two tickets to the 2019 Swanage Jazz Festival (July 12th to July 14th). Come on people, it is all for a great cause and at £2.00 a punt, it is certainly worth a try. Buy your ticket here: https://nigelpriceorgantrio.zaffo.com/ Good luck!
