Jazz touring made possible.

Emerging and mid-career jazz artists—take your music to places it’s never been with a grant from Jazz Road. Funds are now available for artists to build tours.


The Jazz Road team hosted a webinar to provide an overview of the program and supplement content from our guidelines; watch the recording. We will host a second informational webinar on July 2 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

What is Jazz Road?

Our goal is simple: to support jazz artists with grants that bring their work to a wide range of venues throughout the country, deepening public appreciation for this art form on a community level. Led by South Arts, Jazz Road was created in partnership with five other Regional Arts Organizations (RAOs) across the United States.
