Contestant to Judge – Stephen Magnusson – National Jazz Awards 2022

Stephen Magnusson was joint winner of the National Jazz Awards for Guitar in 2000.  In 2022 Stephen is one of the three Judges in this years National Jazz Awards – the 4th time that Guitar has been the featured instrument.

Stephen spoke about being gifted a Ukulele when he was only 3 years of age, an instrument that he viewed at the time as his ‘guitar’, and then receiving a guitar when he was 6 – and the thrill of immediately being able to make the same guitar sounds as he heard on the radio!

Stephen discussed the draw of the awards as a great opportunity to play with an awesome band while performing at the top or your craft – with the potential to win a great prize.

The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, incorporating the National Jazz Awards, is back live face to face this year over the weekend of October 28-30, 2022 in Wangaratta in North East Victoria.  Details of the requirements to enter the awards are contained on the festival website with entries due no later than August 31, 2022.

Stephen Magnusson was guest of Bent Notes on Sunday August 21, 2022
