Friends we’ve lost: Beegie Adair 1937-2022

Beloved jazz pianist Beegie Adair passed away January 23, 2022 at the age of 84. Beegie was known and loved worldwide. She was also part of the heart and soul of the Nashville Jazz Workshop and the Workshop was her musical home. Beegie was a founding Board member, taught regularly during the early years, performed regularly at NJW with her trio, and shared her personal and musical gifts with us in so many ways.
