Join CurePSP for the Jeff Golub Film Debut in Benefit of CurePSP!

This hybrid (in-person and online) film debut and cocktail reception for “Train Keeps a Rolling” honors the life of the world-renowned guitarist Jeff Golub and his wife, Audrey Stafford. They were living a near-perfect life when Jeff suddenly lost his sight at the age of 56. What at first seemed a surmountable hurdle soon evolved into a much larger problem, as it became clear that Jeff had also developed a rare neurological disorder, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).

Through years of archival and verité footage, as well as interviews with celebrated musicians and a score composed and performed by Jeff’s former friends and colleagues, this intimate portrait provides an in-depth account of Jeff’s final years. It tells of the immense burden his wife was forced to undertake, the strain Jeff’s illness caused with his family and friends, and the story of his impressive musical legacy. It is a universal story of the hardships of terminal illness, told through the lens of one of the jazz community’s most beloved musicians.

With the support of the director, Kyle I. Kelley, the Light of Day Foundation, and Audrey Stafford, they are raising funds to support our mission of care, consciousness, and cure of prime of life neurodegenerative diseases in memory of Jeff Golub.
