The Bluebird Migration Project

Introducing the Bluebird Migration Project (also known as Guerilla Bluebird…): an experiment in musical altruism, or shameless promotion?  We like to think the former.  Jon is about to embark on two months of European and UK touring as trumpet player with iconic band the Specials.  His hand luggage will consist of a pair of clean […]
