An Eddie Higgins Jam Session

SOURCE: Published: 2009-11-13
Because of the high volume of comments Rifftides received following our piece on the death of pianist Eddie Higgins, the staff thought there might be widespread interest in a memorial concert. We bring you the announcement as it arrived by e-mail from Florida. This will give you time to make plans to fly in from, say, Tokyo or St. Thomas.



There will be a Jam Session tribute to Eddie Higgins on Sunday, December 6 from 4pm to 6pm in the ArtServe auditorium at 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd.

(Ft. Lauderdale Library branch)

Pot Luck finger food, please. Soft drinks provided. BYOB. Free admission.

Contributions to the Haydn (Eddie) Higgins Memorial Music Scholarship Fund will be gratefully appreciated. For information about the jam session and scholarship, call 954-524-0805.



I think Haydn would like the BYOB part.
