People of Note - Ann Barr
The Cape Town Big Band Festival is back with a bang and opens this week on the 25th and runs to the 28th at the Baxter Concert Hall. The festival was started in 1999 by Dennis Barr and, after his death, his wife ANN BARR took over the rains. Ann is also a board member of SAJE, the South African Jazz Educators. In this week’s edition of People of Note, RT spoke to Ann Barr about the festival and what we can expect this year.
