Studio Guest – Missey Jones – Thurs 27 Feb 5-6pm on Trad Spotlight with Kirsten Forsyth
Missy Jones will be on Trad Spotlight with Kirsten Forsyth on Thursday 27th February from 5-6pm to talk about the “From the Ashes fundraising concert’.
“From the Ashes” bushfire fundraising concert and auction will be held at Dram on Woodlands Rd, Friday 6 March, doors at 7:30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets are available through Eventbrite for as little as £5, but you can donate up to £20 if you wish. Funds are being donated to the ongoing firefighting effort, injured wildlife recovery, and to help rebuild the community and folk festival of Cobargo, a town which was completely burnt to the ground over Hogmanay.
Premise: It will be a concert of Australian fiddlers living
in Glasgow, performing a mix solo pieces and collaborations with each other and
some of their local projects, with an auction of donated items in the middle to
raise extra money. Line up includes Jeri Foreman, Lachlan Green, Malcolm
Bushby, Linda Rankin, and Missy Jones with Ellen Gira, Laura Wilkie, Kirsten
Forsyth and The Fika Collective. Auction items include Australian wines, Tyree
Gin, a Stef Baxter pottery workshop experience for 2, original Australian art,
original composition collections and tunebooks, original scarf and kit items
from the Shetland Hjaltibonhoga Fiddlers (of Tattoo fame), Australian-made
jewellery, a suite of CDs, and even Tim Tams.
There will also be small items for sale including handmade greeting cards and teatowels.
There’s limited tickets so we recommend booking to avoid missing out!
