Lichfield jazz website nominated for top award

jazzawardslogoA jazz music website run by a Lichfield journalist has been nominated for a top award.

The Jazz Breakfast is run by former the Lichfield Festival’s Peter Bacon and has been shortlisted in the Jazz Publication category of the 2009 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

The Jazz Breakfast will be up against Jazzwise magazine and Jazz Reloaded.

The winners will be announced by Paul Gambaccini at the House of Commons on May 20.

Writing on his website, Mr Bacon admitted the nomination showed websites were finally beginning to get the recognition they deserve. He said:

“Excellent that two web-based operations are in the running – proof at last that the new media are as valued as the old, and that when it comes to what is, let us face it, a niche interest, the web or blog site is the perfect vehicle for sharing information about and enthusiasm for this treasured art form.”
