We are celebrating the first anniversary of the peace agreement with a fundraiser concert on Thursday 23rd November at The Victoria.
Really amazing artist will be sharing their music in solidarity with Colombia:
Slip Digby (click on the name to listen to their music)
Slip Digby are a four piece of men from all over The British Isles that some have described as halfway between grunge and soul, and some describe it as straight up rock.
Having got going in early 2016 they have played at various iconic venues around the country already, including the Borderline and Dublin Castle in London, and want this to continue. Every track they have submitted has been played on BBC introducing including 2 that were record of the week and hoping for more airplay after the EP launch in April 2017.
They have a big sound and they know how to play.
Hailing from North London, soulstress Jessie Lee Burn’s unique voice courts the influences of North American legends Billie Holiday and Joni Mitchell, whilst maintaining the gritty charm and character of her natural dialect.
Joining her on stage for this special gig will be Cuban born Mel Semé. Once a member of The Symphonic Orchestra of Havana, he has gained a reputable name for himself playing in notable venues around Barcelona.
His seamless vocals are reminiscent of Sampha’s dulcet tones and the harmonious blend of the two artists voices achieves a bewitching sound which is not to be missed.
Noemie Ducimetière (click on the name to listen to her music)
Noémie is a multi instrumentalist and multi lingual experimental blues, rock and folk artist, capable of captivating a room with an entrancing sound and incendiary voice.
