I’ve recently been involved in organising a weekend of live music and arts events that will give much needed support to foodbanks and other causes. ‘We Shall Overcome’ is a community effort led by musicians and music promoters who want to do something practical to help people being hit hard by homelessness and poverty.
On the weekend of October 2-3-4 around 200 gigs will take place across the UK under one unified banner – We Shall Overcome. We hope this show of solidarity will also highlight the human cost to the politics of austerity. Several thousand musicians will perform as audiences are encouraged to bring food for foodbanks or make donations to homelessness and other projects.
Over the weekend I’ll be playing several of the events, as well as organising the Glossop one.
