Unsung Heroes of New England

With the “Unsung Hero” award, the New England Jazz Hall of Fame recognizes a group of jazz advocates from around the region for their efforts in promoting and preserving the music. Some of these individuals were musicians and others were not, but all shared a passion for jazz worthy of widespread recognition. Five such activists have been named Unsung Heroes thus far.
