EMMA Langford is one of the artists in the line-up for the revived Music for Mental health gig at Dolans Warehouse on Sunday, January 16.
The event is returning after a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic. To meet the latest Covid guidelines, the popular fundraising and mental health awareness event has been adapted to a Matinee Gig taking place from 4pm on Sunday January 16.
Organiser and founder of social impact firm Humanli, Karl Daly, said: “We felt it was really important to press ahead with the event. Generating awareness for Mental Health and fundraising for charities is so important right now due to the ongoing pandemic. Our performers want to get on stage and perform so we’ve done our very best to ensure the event is viable and safe for everyone.”
The line-up includes classically trained soprano Leah Barniville, who reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent at the age of 14, and local sensation Emma Langford.
Ennistymon School Choir will perform a song written especially for the event by Susan O’Neill. The Lost Boys, Afro-Pop, and Stray Saints have also been confirmed.
2016 All-Star Mary Hulgraine will share her story about her mental health struggles and broadcaster and author Meghann Scully will briefly interview the supported charities.
Music for Mental Health is a social impact event linking artists, businesses and good causes to generate awareness for mental health in Ireland.
All of the artists perform free of charge and all monies raised through ticket sales are shared among the seven charities within the Humanli family.
They are: Blue Box Creative Arts Therapy, Cliona’s Foundation, CareBright Community, Clare’s Wish Foundation, Corpus Christi Primary School, Limerick Suicide Watch and Lime Tree Theatre.
