Polar Bear's Mark Lockheart won 'Musician Of The Year' at the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, which were held on Wednesday night at the House of Commons in London (aka a giant fresher's fair for new MPs, I would imagine).
The pic above shows Mark looking slightly awkward being presented with his award by Michael Connarty MP and Lord Tony Colwyn, Co-Chairmen of APPJAG (All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group, no less). Who wouldn't?
The last year has seen saxophonist Lockheart release Days Like These with the NDR Big Band along with Polar Bear's Peepers, which was released to great acclaim in March.
Polar Bear's band leader and percussionist, Seb Rochford, was also nominated for the same award. You can read more here.
