You won’t need to look hard for reasons to want to go to this gig. And to go in support of a good cause.
Who was the anti-apartheid campaigner who first gave the fourteen year old Hugh Masekela a trumpet, and set him on the road to international stardom?
Who lined up the support from John Dankworth and Yehudi Menuhin to enable Masekela to leave South Africa to study?
Bishop Trevor Huddleston (1913- 1998).
Quote: “No white person has done more for South Africa than Trevor Huddleston.” Nelson Mandela
The concert on 17th June will be a fundraiser for the Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre. The Centre is in Sophiatown in Johannesburg and runs youth programmes. If you want to hear more, just let Hugh Masekela tell you the story, its story, his very personal story first-hand, at a London SW1 venue – which will be disclosed when you book a ticket.
You will also hear Larry Willis on a fabulous Fazioli grand piano.
