11 Apr JACK Bruce Tribute Concert Screening to benefit local charity
An exclusive screening of the Jack Bruce Sunshine of your Love tribute concert with celebrity question and answer session will be taking place in May to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The screening and Q&A will be hosted by Edith Bowman, attended by Jack’s family and musicians who performed at the tribute, including Musical Director Nitin Sawhney.
Sunshine of your Love was held in 2015 on the first anniversary of Jack Bruce’s passing. The event boasted a star-studded line up of world class musicians performed a moving musical tribute to the Scottish legend at The Roundhouse in London.
The tribute concert, musically directed by Nitin Sawhney, featured Jack’s Cream bandmate Ginger Baker, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, Joss Stone, Level 42’s Mark King, Living Colour’s Vernon Reid, Uli Jon Roth, Hugh Cornwell and many more. This incredible line-up delighted the capacity audience with a stunning selection of Bruce’s songs spanning his entire career, from the pre-Cream days to his final album ‘Silver Rails’.
The tribute concert was recorded for posterity and is presented in HD with surround sound audio. This unique recording will receive its debut screening in the luxurious surroundings of the Curzon Mayfair on 14th May 2018. This is a particularly auspicious date, as it would have marked Jack’s 75th Birthday.
This exclusive screening will be followed by a Q&A hosted by Edith Bowman. This will offer audience members a unique opportunity to quiz many of the original tribute’s contributors, including music director Nitin Sawhney, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson, Mark King and members of Bruce’s family, about this wonderful concert.
All profits from the screening will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. EACH were also the beneficiaries of the original tribute concert, which raised more than £35,000.
