Remember those 80 guitarists on one stage last year? Awesome music from the greats like The Beatles, Smokie and The Tramps? Yes, Strummin’ is back and preparations for this year’s edition have begun!
Last year Strummin’ raised €5,000 which was donated to Hospice Malta — a voluntary, non-profit organisation with a team of 30 people providing palliative care and support to cancer patients and their families. With an ever-increasing case load, and the expansion of the services they offer, this donation is welcome by the Hospice Malta as they celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.
The event in 2013 was supported by Voices Foundation, The Good Causes Fund, Malta International Airport, Studio 7, MCAST and The Sound System. An annual event in the ZHN calendar, 2014 will see the concert’s thirteenth edition. The concert is nowadays synonymous with the promotion of Maltese talent, while fulfilling the ideals of ZHN, in being a platform for young local talent and developing young people’s potential.
This year’s proceeds will go to Dr Klown, a local NGO dedicated to providing humour and clown doctor services at Mater Dei Hospital. Applications for anyone interested in joining Strummin’ as guitarists, singers and crew are now open. More information is available at strumminartists.com Applications may be submitted at strumminartists.com/apply
Strummin’ would like to take this opportunity to invite third parties to collaborate with us as sponsors this year. Interested parties are invited to get in touch on [email protected] for more information. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the local music industry.
