Veteran Welsh Jazz and blues musician dies at 85

15 January 2018

It is with sadness that we inform everyone of the death of Mike Harries at 85 – trombonist and frontman with the Root Doctors.   An architect by profession, he was born in Ynysybwl and grew up in Cardiff.  He played at the first Brecon Jazz Festival in 1985 with his Mike Harries Jazz Band and later with Adamant Band.  He appeared regularly at Brecon Jazz Festival and will be missed by many.  Our thoughts go to his wife and family.
