Ian Carr Celebration – two updates

The benefit evening for Alzheimer’s charities, celebrating the life of Ian Carr, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 23rd February, raised £7,000, significantly more than budgeted.

The performance of Northumbrian Sketches from the concert was recorded by Jazz on 3, and will be broadcast on April 19th.

Meanwhile, for all things Ian Carr, there’s one place to go:

Roger Farbey’s  (NEW!!) Ian Carr site.

  1. Alyn Shipton has written in by Facebook:

    “All the proceeds of sales of my bio of Ian at the event were donated by Equinox to the Alzheimer fund, I was gutted to be in the U.S. on the day of the concert.”


  2. A great man who did a lot to help other musicians as well as, sorry, blow his own trumpet. I'll never forget the Ian Carr/Don Rendell and Nucleus groups which were an inspiration to me as an adolescent or his Melody Maker journalism, the Miles bio and so much more. RIP
