It is with very great sadness that Josh and I write to let you know that Martin [Kemp] passed away on Saturday evening. Many of you know Martin well and have played music and gigs with him regularly. Martin ran the Grafham jazz weekends for many years before Josh and I took on this role in 2019.
There are no words to express the loss of such a kind and gentle person, and a wonderful musician who loved music, Classical and Jazz, his whole life. His passing leaves a huge hole in our lives. But we want to celebrate his life and everything he was, remembering all the wonderful things he did and all his wonderful qualities. There will be a service for him and we will let you know the details once it is arranged.
Josh and Ruth xx
