Stornoway to Auction Off Guitar for Wildlife Conservation, Headline Concert4Conservation Show in Oxford

By on Friday, 26th August 2011 at 11:00 am

Oxford band Stornoway have donated a Epiphone-S-210 guitar, signed by all four members of their band, to raise funds for wildlife conservation. The guitar will be on auction on eBay, with bidding beginning today (26 August), running through Monday the 6th of September. Money raised by the auction will go to the Concert4Conservation fund, benefiting conservation charities the Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS), the Earth Trust and the RSPB. Singer/songwriter Brian Briggs says:

As an avid wildlife enthusiast I’m very concerned about the dramatic loss of species and habitats occurring worldwide. We decided to do the Concert4Conservation to raise funds for and awareness of the important conservation work the three charities carry out locally and abroad. We’ve also decided to sign and auction one of our beloved guitars to help raise extra money from the event. It’s a beautiful, fully functional Epiphone electric guitar and we hope the buyer enjoys playing it as much as we have!

The related Concert4Conservation gig takes place on Saturday 3 September at Oxford Regal, with Stornoway headlining with the North Sea Radio Orchestra, so you can expect some orchestra versions of the fan’s most beloved songs. Support will come from the Epstein and the Dreaming Spires. The signed Epiphone S-210 will be played during the gig. Tickets for the charity gig are £15 plus booking and can be purchased here from Gigantic; the show is 14+.

More details and a photo of the signed guitar are available here on the SOS Web site. Briggs was interviewed recently about the special concert; listen to the clip below.

Preview: Bingley Music Live Festival 2011

By on Friday, 19th August 2011 at 11:00 am

Closing the summer holidays (at least for Yorkshire), Bingley Music Live (taking place 2-4 September 2011 in Myrtle Park, Bingley) brings together a whole load of huge festival names as well as some up and coming, and incredibly diverse acts in the space of one big weekend.

With both Beacons and Ignition festivals cancelled recently (read more in Martin’s piece here), it’s been left to the likes of Kendal Calling, Tramlines and the colossal Leeds Festival to bring major music acts to the north throughout the summer so Bingley Music Live really is a positive thing. The lineup all begins on Friday with a free event which gives stage to both pop music in the form of up and coming Alice Gold, as well as bringing rock into the frame with Young Guns and Skindred. The free evening’s entertainment also features the Go! Team and headliners Fun Lovin’ Criminals.

The rest of the weekend’s bill is brought for just £25 a day, or £35 brings one day of absolute festival favourites Maximo Park and Feeder are at the top of the bill, bringing their infectious breed or indie-rock anthems to the stage and the pattern continues down the bill with the likes of Mystery Jets and Athlete. Further down the bill, TGTF favourites White Denim and newly solo boy Jon Fratelli prop up a solid lineup of pure festival artists. Sunday brings yet more diversity in the form of Leeds group The Sunshine Underground, chart topper Wretch32 and London pop girl Eliza Doolitle. The Coral will be looking to continue a return to form before the heavyweights that are Chase and Status bring their famous live show bouncing over Myrtle Park. Bingley’s hardly going to know what’s hit it!

A festival like this sells itself by booking such phenomenal and diverse acts, and with off-site camping and other options of where to stay, you can hardly argue that it’s not for everyone. I’m sure 15,000 people will loudly agree throughout the weekend.

Weekend tickets are available from HMV stores around Yorkshire, Crash and Jumbo in Leeds, Attick in York, Leeds Visitor Centre and TICs around Yorkshire, and online at Seetickets, priced £35 (plus booking fee).  For more information, visit the official Bingley Music Live Web site.
