Folk for Kaikoura takes place at various venues around New Zealand on the 8-12th of December 2016. New Zealand Folk Musicians all over the country are organising a series of fundraising Concerts and collections to raise money for the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal.
Jo Sheffield, member of Levin Folk Music Club, was inspired to approach the folk music community to ask for help to raise funds towards supporting the victims of the devastating earthquakes in Kaikoura and surrounding districts. “It is amazing how quickly everyone sprang into action to help organise concerts, arrange venues & sound systems, and play for free” she said. “I am blown away by the overwhelming response and think that together, we can make a real difference”.
The Levin concert which is being organised by Jo, (with help from the LFMC and members) is on Saturday 10th December from 2pm to 5pm at Levin Memorial Hall (corners of Queen Street and Chamberlain Streets). Door sales are available and tickets are just $10 each with ALL proceeds going directly into the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal. Please come along and support all those affected by the devastating earthquake. We have a great line-up of local artists to entertain you, including Black-Eyed Suzie, Steve Poulton, Kevin Watson with Simon Burgess & Gill Allen, and Nigel Parry, as well as Wellington-based musicians Vic Manuel and Jim and Roni Perkins.
We look forward to seeing you on the day but if you can’t make it, you can also donate through our Give A Little Page (https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/folk4kaikoura ).
