Ian Paice (DEEP PURPLE), Bruce Dickinson (IRON MAIDEN), Micky Moody (ex-WHITESNAKE), Margo Buchanan (ex-PINK FLOYD) and Murray Gould (ex-ELTON JOHN) will take part in THe Sunflower Jam 2009, a fundraising event organized by the British charity Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust. This year's Sunflower Jam will take place on Thursday, September 24 at London W2.
The concept of The Sunflower Jam was originally developed in 2006 by Ian Paice's wife Jacky. Jacky's vision was always to hold a small, intimate event that brought together people with a passion for music, both in the audience and on stage, making the evening a fun way to raise money while avoiding the usual stuffiness of charity events. The dining room of the Paice family home was promptly overtaken as the office and all conversations related to the event. Over the past three years, every member of Jacky's family and extended family has been involved with the events in some way. Add to this a network of friends and the result is a truly family-organized event!
