The Oh Yeah Legend Award recognises the exceptional contribution of a musician from Northern Ireland.
This year we are honoured to add the late great Jackie Flavelle to the Legend series at the NI Music Exhibition in Oh Yeah. Jackie was the Bass master from North Belfast via Donaghadee, a giant of the Jazz an Blues scene who worked with many well known names over the years including Ottilie Patterson, Chris Barber, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Dr John, Sonny Boy Williamson and Rod Stewart to name only a few.
The event which takes place on Thursday 8th November has been curated by his daughter Lisa and will be presented by Stuart Bailie. The evening will include a posthumous presentation in his honour and several accomplished musicians and artists will come together to celebrate and pay tribute with a night filled with live music.
As Lisa said it will be a Jam for Jackie.
