The jazz scene on Tyneside can surely have had no more committed a supporter than Margaret Barnes. 

It’s usually the case with jazz promoters that one individual appears as the public face, but in reality, it’s the work of a team that keeps the show on the road - and there can hardly have been a greater team player than Margaret. The jazz community - musicians, fans and organisers alike - owe her a massive debt of gratitude, and this concert, raising funds for her chosen charity, is our way of saying “Thank You, Margaret”.

For well over 40 years she served on the Board of Jazz North East, providing continuity through countless changes in membership, and ever ready with her measured thoughts on the organisation’s concert programme. Like any enthusiast Margaret had her own favourite musicians and styles - big bands were perhaps her first love - but she always recognised that jazz has a glorious diversity, and gave unstinting support to gigs right across the spectrum from Hot Club Swing to uncompromising free jazz. Generally sat at the ticket desk, hers was the welcoming smile that immediately assured musicians and audiences that they were in for a good night.  

But it wasn’t just with Jazz North East that Margaret’s love of jazz expressed itself. She was a great supporter of local players, always ready with words of encouragement, and a frequent audience member at gigs ranging from low key trad residencies through to high profile festival sessions. The eagerness with which musicians have signed up to take part in this tribute is a mark of the high esteem in which Margaret was held by everybody who met her and warmed to her boundless enthusiasm.

Please read BSH memories of Margaret after her passing 2 years ago and the comments - 28 of them which may be a BSH record - that says it all. (Lance)
