    Donation to musicians for cancelled gigs at Watermill Jazz in March/April

    We are very conscious that professional musicians will be suffering at this time, because their opportunities to earn a living are being drastically affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. We want to do whatever we can to help them.

    Each month that gigs are cancelled, we will give you the opportunity to donate to the bands who would have played at Watermill Jazz that month by donating money via JustGiving. Please give generously to help replace the musicians' lost income.

    Any funds raised this month will be split equally between the musicians in the following bands :

    Yazz Ahmed Quartet

    Bruce Barth Quartet featuring Peter Bernstein

    Linda May Han Oh

    Pete Oxley/Nic Meier Quartet

    Ian Shaw, Iain Ballamy, Jamie Safir - What's New

    We hope to rebook all of these bands as soon as possible. In the meantime, here are a few tasters of what is to come when we are all released into the wild again!

      Thank you so much to all of the generous people who donated to our campaign to help musicians whose gigs we had to cancel in March/April. You helped us to exceed our target, and your kindness will mean a great deal to the bands who are having a tough time right now. We have opened another Justgiving campaign for the musicians whose gigs we had to cancel in May. Thank you again. Take care and stay safe.
