WHO WE ARE
The Mick Ronson Foundation is run by Steve Harley, Lisa Ronson and John Bird as a tribute to my father, Mick Ronson. He was a creative genius and one of Hull’s best and brightest sons – a classically trained, multi-instrumental performer as well as a visionary producer, arranger, and composer.
He worked alongside the great and the good in music’s Hall of Fame - he never cared for fame or fortune – he only cared about making extraordinary music.
Steve Harley, the original Cockney Rebel, songwriter and touring musician for over 45 years, plays 75+ concerts most years on three continents. Has released 12 albums and still recording.
Steve Harley organized and played Rock for Ronson, a fundraising concert and celebration of the life of Mick Ronson in 2016 at Hull City Hall. This raised £30,000 and all the proceeds will benefit young musicians from Hull and surrounding areas.
I cannot think of a better way to celebrate my father’s life than to be the trustee of a charity set up to help other musicians. If you love music like he did, please support the people making it.
