Answer Andrew Hudson’s plea to help his friend, Clare Church

April 21, 2014

Help a friend.

My pal, Andrew Hudson, made this plea on Facebook to help his friend, Clare Church:

“I’ve been lucky to perform with Clare Church, and she and her husband, Pete Lewis, are two of the most talented musicians I’ve ever known.

“Clare has a rare condition called dystonia which has affected her embouchure. She presently cannot play her saxophones and woodwinds. Up to 18 months ago, Clare was touring with Doc Severinsen, playing with the Colorado Symphony, performing with Art Lande, playing shows, etc.

“On Sunday, May 4 a benefit is being held to assist Clare in raising funds that will allow her to see a medical specialist in Spain. This jazz jam is from 4-7 p.m. at the Elks Club in Louisville (525 Main St, Louisville, 303-666-8600).
