RIP SKIP BECKWITH : 1939 – 2019


Nova Scotia musician and instructor Skip Beckwith is being rememberedĀ  as not only one of the greatest players the region has produced, but a devoted friend with whom so many loved to share the stage.


Donnie and Skip both being here, and playing as well as they did, enabled me to come to Nova Scotia, IĀ  joined the pair in the free-wheeling, improvisatory trio Alive and Well. Together we released two albums in 1992 and 2000, and played a reunion show at the 2006 Halifax Jazz Festival.

They were some of the only people I had something in common with, back in 1986. They were on board, and they thought the trio was a great idea. The thing you have to know about Donnie and Skip is that they were driven by a tremendous love for the music.
