John Jarrard left us far too early due to complications from diabetes. And after his passing in 2001, many of John’s closest friends, including Bruce Burch, determined to continue John’s tremendous legacy through this foundation. We strive to honor the contributions and values that the two hit songwriters conveyed through their shared love of life and music. Bruce later passed in 2022, and we continue to deliver on the promise he helped found through concerts, events, and charitable giving. The Jarrard Burch Foundation ensures that the song lives on. We have shared that message with tens of thousands of people through the years. And as a result, we have raised needed funds for many worthy causes while also helping to encourage the next generation of songwriters to follow in John’s and Bruce’s legendary footsteps.
That is why we look forward to entertaining thousands more with our annual concert series – which we have held every year since our very first “Bruce Burch & Friends Honor John Jarrard” concert in 2001. We are thrilled to have grown so much and even more thrilled in knowing that we pass on the generous spirit of Bruce and John with each event.
