Legion parties to remember JC

Memorial to popular musician

Two hundred followers of the Manx live music scene are due to pack the Manx Legion club tonight, for a musical tribute to a popular local artist who died in December.

A five hour gig featuring current bands and singers will perform at the event, in memory of guitarist, music teacher, poet and story-teller John Callister - or JC as he was known.

He lost a battle with cancer at the end of last year, his death prompting many tributes to his wide appeal across the generations.

A number of tickets are still available - doors open at the Legion club in Market Hill in Douglas at 6.30pm and the evening starts at 7pm.

Organsier of tonight's gig Jan Jordan Canty, says JC's many friends want to mark his passing in a way he'd approve:
