Fundraiser for the Philippines

Fundraiser for the phillipines

Tonight, Friday November 22nd, Camden Street’s Anseo bar is to play host to a special live music event, the proceeds of which will go towards helping the aid effort in the Philippines.

Kicking off at 9 pm, the event will be headlined by acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Brett Hunt.

Hunt’s musical inspiration comes from the traditional Country, Blues and Folk music of the US and he cites artists like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Willie Nelson as major influences. Seeing the 1986 film Crossroads, in which a blues guitarist sells his soul to the devil (inspired by the legend of blues man Robert Johnson), as a child convinced Hunt to become a blues man himself. In 2003, his self-titled debut album was voted “Album of the Year” by PBS Radio in Melbourne.

Local artists are also featuring on the line-up, including singer-songwriters Glenn Dunne and Garr Cleary.

There is no entrance fee but a donation, the amount of which is at your discretion, to help those requiring aid in the Philippines is expected and appreciated.
