NJN Jazz Advent Calendar - Ken Ford (Dec 17th)
Today we pay tribute to a staunch supporter of jazz and long time jazz promoter Ken Ford who sadly passed away this week.
There is no link to a musical offering today but instead we urge yoyou to check out the plethora of artists that have played at Hull Jazz by checking out their website - http://www.hulljazz.org.uk/index.html
From Northern Jazz Live...
Sad to hear of the passing of Ken Ford from Hull Jazz. Ken had organised the weekly club in Hull since 1983, originally at the Howarth Arms and latterly at the Goodfellowship on Cottingham Road. The 2017 Hull City of Culture will be a fitting memorial to his work playing and promoting live music in the City
Kens funeral will be at 10.30am Thursday 29th December at the large crematorium, Chanterlands Avenue Hull HU5 3TS. The wake afterwards will be at the Kenilworth Suite, Goodfellowship Arms in Cottingham Road HU5 4AT. There will be a musical tribute to him.
