Oxfam Dumfries seeks musicians for live in-store performances

The lovely folks at Oxfam in Dumfries are looking for musicians to help them raise money for their charity by performing live in their shop.

Oxfam DumfriesDumfries and Galloway based bands and solo artists are being given the opportunity to perform a couple of songs in-store at their shop on Queensberry Street in the town, which will be recorded and then made into a music video (you can see local act Taagan‘s video below). Following on from their successful acoustic folk night last September, the charity is also looking for musicians to be part of a gig in November. Both the gig and recorded performances will take place inside the shop and, due to space limitations, would be best suited to acoustic acts or bands that are willing to strip back their sound a little bit!

Rory Fairweather, Manager of the Oxfam shop in Dumfries, explained, “We had a lot of fun last year at our gig in the shop. It helped raise hundreds of pounds so let’s do it again! The acts generously gave their time to Oxfam and we’re looking for more musicians who are happy to play to support Oxfam’s vital work helping millions of people around the world. To give more acts a chance to be involved with Oxfam, we’ve been recording sessions in our shop over the past few months. We’re looking for people from all genres and of all ages who would like to take part.

Any interested musicians should contact Rory directly via email at rfairweather1@oxfam.org.uk.

Remember to give them a wee like on the Dumfries Oxfam Books and Music Facebook Page, and follow them on Twitter.
