Lol Coxhill Tree Planting

Saxophonist Lol Coxhill (1932-2012) died last month, having lived a rich musical life that saw him play with everybody from Kevin Ayers to The Damned.In recent years he played regularly in summer gigs at the Herb Garden in Deptford, and he will be remembered there tomorrow (Monday 27 July) with music and the planting of a mulberry tree. David Aylward writes:

'Hi all, I'm sure most of you are aware of the sad death of Lol Coxhill on the 10th of July.  This Monday there will be a tree planted at the Herb Garden at McMillan Street, Deptford at 5PM in memory of him and the numerous fantastic gigs he gave there over the seasons, there will be music from Tom Scott, Nick DD, Adrian Northover, Simon Coxhill,  and an account of one of Lol's last gigs at the garden, all hosted by Joe Bazouki'.
