Beaufort Jazz

Great music – and you are invited!

Frank Farrington

Very sadly we have received news that Frank Farrington a long time supporter of our Beaufort Jazz evenings has passed away. Frank will be remembered as one of the stalwarts of the audience who was invariably present listening to the music. In more recent times Frank had not been able to attend due to illness.

Although he was thought to favour the more traditional Jazz style he obviously enjoyed our monthly offering of mainly Gypsy Jazz and nearly always attended the special gigs which we used to promote on a regular basis. Without such loyal support from regulars like Frank, it is doubtful that Beaufort Jazz would have survived as long as it has done.

We understand that his funeral will be held at on Monday at 10.40am at Southport Crematorium and will no doubt be attended by other Beaufort regulars. Our thoughts are with his family.
