Going Dutch: jazz from the Netherlands 2017
United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland, 01 January - 31 December 2017
Dutch Performing Arts commissioned the Jazz Promotion Network to coordinate the focus programme going Dutch in 2017 to support Dutch jazz musicians and/or groups to perform and tour in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. There are plans to continue the programme in 2018.
Going Dutch consists of an umbrella campaign, invitations for jazz promotors and journalists to every concert and, under certain conditions, also support for travel and accommodation.

In the coming period there are gigs by Tin Men & The Telepone, Eric Vloeimans and ICP orchestra. For more information about the programme and upcoming Dutch gigs in the United Kingdom and Ireland please go to jazzpromotionnetwork.org.uk/goingdutch, or contact Nod Knowles via email@example.com.
Eric Vloeimans (Huizen, 1963) is an improvising trumpeter and composer who regards the term ‘jazz’ as too limiting to describe his music. His work is characterized by melodic and lyrical power, and a distinctive, individual sound that is called velvety or whispering in the more subdued pieces.referencesnl-nl.facebook.com/pages/Eric-Vloeimans/205814296157646www.ericvloeimans.nl
