Last Saturday many of Gavin’s close friends and family got together to celebrate his life and play his songs.
From his earliest to his last, they were sung and performed by wonderful artists, friends and family who shared their memories and love for our dearly missed friend.
For everyone performing those songs without him there, stood in front of or beside them, was always going to be hard. However, when you have: James Griffith, Joel Cadbury , Rich File, Matt pierce, Tim Young (Chancer), Leo Taylor, Ben Ottewell, Liela Moss, Gav’s son Michael Clark and myself Pablo Clements performing, it made it slightly easier.
There were many performances on the night from: Ted Barnes and Ali Friend (Clayhill), Nick Hemming and Helen Wittaker(The Leisure Society), Emma Fox and Helen Bouding. Here are some pictures of that evening.
We did it for you Gav, we all miss you so much.
