Summer News Update 2014

SUMMER NEWS UPDATE

Greetings from the stunning the Camargue in the South of France, from where I'm writing this summer news update.

Decided to move my entire healthcare permanently to France. They are not ageist nor is there any cost restriction on available drugs. it does seem much better, many thanks to CSF (Cancer Support France) for their unrivalled support during this difficult change over period.

Summer has seen me photographing four days at the Vienne Jazz festival, with such artists as Buddy Guy, the Tedeschi Truck band, Ben L'Uncle, Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, to name a few. Two days in Juan les Pins, with Imelda May, Joss Stone & the Fabulous Chick Corea with Stanley Clarke, there's still plenty of great music around, many thanks to fellow photographers Tim Dickeson and Ed Hawkins for looking after me in the photo pits.

My BBC Radio 2 interview with Clare Teal is now being broadcast on Sunday 27th of July just after 10 PM (22.00).

Future plans include a Norwegian Fiord cruise in the autumn, the London Jazz festival in November and at an exhibition at the new South Coast Jazz festival in the Shoreham Arts centre in late January 2015.

I was shocked and upset by the news of the sudden death of my friend writer Jack Massarik, we had some great times together, most memorable was a trip to Cuba in 1990, and may he rest in piece.

Thanks as ever to my lovely wife Suzy for her unfailing devotion and constant caring for me during this time.

Keep the faith and live every day to the full, you just never know…….

The great,
late David Redfern
