Ex Camden Mayor swaps his robes for Music tsar post
Cllr Jonathan Simpson will foster stronger relationships with live music venues
He was billed as Camden’s first ever Rock ‘n’ Roll Mayor – and now Cllr Jonathan Simpson has scored another number one as the borough’s first music tzar.
The music industry is one of the largest employers in Camden, and in his new role Cllr Simpson will build relationships between live music venues and the town hall.
Cllr Simpson, musical tzar for Camden, said:
”It is an honour to be named Camden music tzar and I am thrilled to be able to carry on working with some of the most talented and creative people around.
