A 2015 MUSIC EARTH RISE EVENT: TUES 20th JANUARY

December 8th 2014

Tom Hingley (formerly of INSPIRAL CARPETS) heads up a night of music performance by candlelight 

Music is the bedrock of modern civilization, yet its true creators are increasingly being side lined as artists are continually being relied upon to offer their services and product for free. Music Earth Rise (MER) is launching as a social enterprise that aims to help reverse this trend.

We support music artists to help show young people and music lovers a more realistic view of the artist and their life on the ground as an alternative to both the monopolisation and representation of music artists as shown by mainstream media such as The Xfactor and The Voice. We want to show the world the value of the musician/songwriter, their time, their artistry, their stories and the obstacles they face.

This launch gig is a precursor to our Birmingham based music workshop of conversation, performance and Q&A
