A MUSIC concert in aid of homeless people in Stratford is being put on by Street Arts project.
The gig, at the Playhouse on Saturday September 2, will bring together all the songs that have been written and devised by the community group’s songwriting workshop participants over the past year.
Run by Doug Armstrong, and supported by Street Arts Project professional musicians Wes Finch and Jack Blackman, the sessions aim to offer everyone a chance to share their life experiences, difficulties, and hopes through music.
Doug Armstrong said: “The concert is a huge achievement for the guys who will brave it onto the stage and perform their own songs, backed by some of the best musicians in the area. It gives them a voice, raises self-esteem and is a fantastic way to share their stories. All the artists provide their time free of charge, so it is a real care in the community event.”
The concert is free of charge but donations are welcome and will go directly to support the vulnerable.
The new CD, Street Arts Project 3rd, produced from the workshops, will also be on sale to help raise funds.
Booking is not required. Doors open at 7.15pm for a 8pm start.
