It's that time of the week again, and today's blog is about Black Wolf Blues’ first Vox/War Child busking sessions.
On Sunday November 26th we were out on the South Bank raising money for War Child UK.
War Child is the only specialist charity for children affected by wars and conflicts around the world. For more than two decades, they’ve been driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.
War Child was founded in 1993 by filmmakers David Wilson and Bill Leeson, along with social entrepreneur Willemijn Verloop. On assignment in the former Yugoslavia, they were horrified by the violence and ethnic cleansing they witnessed and especially its impact on children.
So the aim of the charity has always been to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and support them long after the cameras have gone.
They deliver life-changing services and support in communities affected by conflicts to keep children safe and help them to heal and learn for the chance of a better future.
They work with a number of passionate, creative and forward-thinking partners, agencies, brands, corporates, trusts and foundations to ensure they have the greatest impact for children living through conflict.
Hot Vox in its turn is a music management, production and promotion company.
They create events that showcase talents across a full range of genres, creating a great atmosphere for both musicians and fans alike.
They also specialize in management, video production and work as consultants for branding, advertising, TV and film.
Their creative team has the expertise to cover all aspects of video production, from initial concept to the final product.
They work with established, touring acts as well as supporting up and coming musicians, giving them the opportunity to perform in great venues.
They also work closely with festivals such as the Isle Of Wight Festival and The Great Escape Festival.
And we've been lucky to be working closely with this outstanding giant in the UK entertainment industry.
And it is for the world renowned charity War Child UK, alongside Hot Vox, that we will be working on a fundraiser until Thursday Dec 14th.
From Thursday November 16th the page for our fundraiser has been live, we’ve gathered a good amount of donations so far but we still have a lot more to raise for this beautiful cause!
And as part of the campaign we are also playing several busking sessions around Central London until December 14th.
On Sunday November 26th we were out on the South Bank for the first of these busking sessions, and it was absolutely amazing.
The South Bank is a vibrant area, full of life and people from all over the UK as well as all over the world.
As buskers we get to connect to the public in a very special way, and we were touched by all the support we received.
The busking sessions are free shows open to all ages, so make sure you come down and have some fun with us!
We also recorded an awesome livestream, which happened on Thursday November 23th! This was a very special presentation, from now on available on the following link, so make sure you watch it and enjoy the show:
Donations are possible online, so if you can please donate to this beautiful cause. We really appreciate your support!
And you can actually choose one of our personalized special rewards from the band that come freely with your donations, so please check it all out the link above (also available on our socials, Lilnktree and website).
The campaign ends on Thursday December 14th.
We really appreciate your support!
You can catch us live next on Friday December 8th at the Temple of Arts and Music, Smithfield Market Arms! This is a FREE ENTRY SHOW, right in the heart of Smithfield Market on a beautiful Friday night!
