Hilde Marie Holsen on 12 Points 2016 Jam Sessions: ‘Make Scratchy Sounds’

Every year at 12 Points we host the European Jam Session where 12 Points artists can jam with eachother and local musicians. The jam is different each year due to sponteneity, location and musicians so we asked solo trumpeter Hilde Marie Holsen, to give her views on the European Jam Session this year. Hilde got super involved with all aspects of the festival this year from her amazing performance, to her input at the Jazz Futures discussions to making 'scratchy sounds' at the jam. We were delighted to hear about her experience.
