Fair Frome Swings with Pee Wee Ellis

Story posted on

A charity evening with jazz and funk star, Pee Wee Ellis, with the Keith Harrison-Broninski Trio, will   combine  top level jazz with talks about Fair Frome’s work and that of associated projects,  at Frome Community College on Saturday 9th February from 7.00pm-10.30pm.

Fair Frome (www.fairfrome.org) is a local charity that helps to alleviate the effects of poverty for local people, offering practical support such as ensuring that everyone has access to food, furniture, white goods and kitchen equipment.  

Fair Frome also aspires towards greater financial, educational, social and health equality in Frome and runs projects designed to bring people together from different backgrounds and across generations to find common solutions. They run real projects which make a real difference for real people.

  Organisers say, “For this charitable occasion, jazz and funk star Pee Wee Ellis is guesting with the Keith Harrison-Broninski Trio – which for some may bring back happy memories of Pee Wee’s appearances at the legendary community event Nunney Jazz Cafe!

“The aim is to raise both awareness and funds at the coldest time of year.  The concert is free entry.  There will be opportunities to donate during the evening if you wish, either directly or via the auction at the end of the evening.  We will be asking for items to auction during the evening, which could be:

– Christmas presents you are able to pass on

– other good quality unwanted items

– promises of time for teaching, advice, DIY, other practical help, …

– other opportunities you can offer, such as guided walks or visits

– anything else that people might like!

“The event is in the old school hall of Frome Community College where there is a terrific grand piano.  Do dig out or think up something for the auction, and join us for what will be a fun, fascinating, and worthwhile community event.  If you could say you are Going on the Facebook event (www.facebook. com/events/351107322141587) that will help provide the organisers with an idea of numbers.

“We would like to thank the Royal Society of Arts (Frome branch) and The Cornerhouse (home of jazz in Frome) for sponsoring this event.”
