The blues scene in the northwest of the UK has lost one of it’s own. I am sad to report that blues lover, blues promoter and bluesman Brian Jeffery lost his long battle with illness and passed away last Saturday at 16:45.
I never got to meet BJ face to face but we exchanged emails with the joint aim to publicise blues events in this region. BJ was the gig guide on the Lancashire Blue Notes radio show and was the organiser of the BJ’s Blues at the Hop Pocket gigs.
Brian leaves behind a devoted wife and a loving young daughter.
RIP Brian (BJ) Jeffery
02 March 1957 – 12 July 2008
