Where Are They Now? JazzErie Scholarship Recipients

Did you notice that we began a new series of articles in December? Over the years, JazzErie and our community have contributed to numerous young musicians' futures through our modest scholarship. We're looking them up, one at a time, to see what kind of music they are sharing with the world now.

We began the series with Harry Jacobson's student, Tony Alford, who was our first scholarship recipient. Tony now resides and performs in Florida. If you missed, read the article, Tony Alford Still Loves the Bass.

This month we caught up with guitaris and vocalist, Paul Holmes, currently living in Brooklyn. Paul has achieved quite a bit of success already in his career, and we're proud to know him. See what he's been doing in Paul Holmes: Creating New Musical Spaces.

We started giving an annual scholarship in 1995, and are proud that we can continue to do so. JazzErie Scholarship Returns! Which Area Youth Do You Want To Nominate?
