Tag Archives: fundraiser

Fans of folk music and musicians in general tend to embrace good causes and so folk music events are often very successful at fundraising. Sometimes the recipient is itself involved in music, a festival or a club ar a benefit for a needy musician but often the fundraiser is for a local charity. Two in particular in our patch benefit from several events – these are Hereford’s St Michael’s Hospice and the West Midlands Air Ambulance both of which serve local people magnificently.

So when you are being badgered to come along to a music concert or a ceilidh or even have a collection tin rattled in front of you, remember the cause not the cost or the effort involved.
