Memorial for Richard Burton

Welcome to Mayfest 2021

Memorial for Richard Burton

Richard was a great jazz player and
a regular performer at our Campsie Festivals.

Richard died with COVID-19 last November. He is a great loss to us and to Jazz in Scotland.
As a tribute to Richard, we have made this video featuring 2 photos of him playing at Campsie Festivals
in Milton of Campsie Village Hall and audio of the last piece he made with his fine band, JazzCo,
which contains a number of his arrangements and original compositions.

Many thanks to Frank Cairns, Jazzco’s guitarist, for providing the music.

Listen to Jazzco’s album ‘In the Swing of Things’ here.
