Salford Music Scene – 31st July 2012

This weeks outing concentrates on two events happening in Manchester and Salford over the forthcoming weekend.

Music Under The Tree Festival is a 2 day/evening Charity Event Founded By The Outreach Project (A local Manchester Band) in May 2012.

The First Ever Music Under The Tree Festival takes place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th August.

The Outreach Project,  wanted to use their music to get involved in a charity called ‘School Under The Tree’ based in Awasa, Ethiopia. (Registered Charity Number: 1146128) – more details here.

So after a brainstorm, the lads decided to hold a 2 day/evening festival in Manchester City Centre, and went in search of a venue.  All proceeds from ticket sales and any other fundraising would go to School Under The Tree.

The Outreach Project came across a suitable venue  TV21, in the Northern Quarter on Thomas Street in Central Manchester , so they organised a meeting with the owner of the venue Adrienne Bennet and got the go ahead to put on the Festival.

The band told their school (St. Bede’s College) about the festival and ideas they had, and the headmaster of the School donated resources  for the hire of the pa system.

On this show and on tomorrow nights Aural Delights Show I will be playing music from some of the bands involved……

On Sunday at the Kings Arms we have Salford Salutes Don Macintyre.  Don who sadly died of cancer recently was well known in the Salford and Manchester area as being a first class musician, and what better way to celebrate his life than an afternoon of live music at The Kings Arms, Bloom Street, Salford on Sunday 5th August.

Organiser Tony Flynn says “Since Don passed away it seemed only natural to hold an afternoon of music in his honour and raise money for charity.  I’m glad to say that many, many musicians have asked to play at this gig. Acts include solo artiste, Tony Ridings, a familiar face at Salford Salutes Dylan events, Ian Bent, the singing bricklayer,  John “Boob Boom” McFadden, all the way from Moston, The Big Chickens aka Scott and John, from Salford and Warrington, The Midnight Sun, straight outta Moston, The Threat, knocking ’em dead in Salford, The Inflictors, one of Salford’s finest blues bands, Rockin’ Train! and one band that I am longing to see the multi talented, multi lingual, Bexley Square Blues Band!”

All this for a measly £5!   From 2pm to 7pm.
