ABOUT JAZZ FOR BARB SERIES AND THE ITALIAN CULTURAL CENTRE
Barbara Fudge was a passionate and loyal fan of jazz music. She could be seen all over the city at various jazz events talking and laughing with her friends, mingling with the musicians and enjoying a glass of fine wine. Her personality and laugh were contagious and although no longer with us, her larger than life spirit shines bright.
