Blow the Fuse ‘On Air’
We were awarded funding by the Arts Council of England to produce a series of online concerts recorded exclusively by Blow the Fuse from the Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston plus archive film footage and interviews. We’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us through these extraordinary times and to all of you who became a BTF Patron through donations. Your support was crucial and helped us to produce TEN shows in all. It was a very steep learning curve and we’re hoping to put on another season of online shows later in 2021.
We’ve now reached the last show which features Alison Rayner’s quintet ARQ. All shows after initial broadcast can be viewed anytime on our You Tube channel HERE

Many thanks to the Arts Council Of England for their support….
We’ve won the 2020 award for ‘Services to Jazz’ at the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Awards.
Thanks to everyone involved, it means a lot to us. Congratulations to all the other winners, we’re really honoured.
Our new season of Tomorrow the Moon, supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund began in January 2020.
We were also delighted to have been awarded funding to record the new ARQ album ‘Short Stories’ and for a national tour promoting the album.
Both of these projects are being rescheduled as a result of Coronavirus measures.
See you live again in 2021.
and to the equally wonderful people working at the PRSF for the Women Make music fund.
Thank you to all our supporters and watch this space for more news…
