Live Music Now at Cardiff Hub Festival this August

Wednesday 24th August 2016 2:54PM

Live Music Now is delighted to be delivering several performances and training sessions at this year’s Hub Festival in Cardiff during bank holiday weekend.

 

 

This summer, LMN musicians are thrilled to be taking part in Hub Festival’s The Full Moon, with their very own Live Music Now stage on Saturday 27th August. This is a great opportunity for the LMN musicians to practise their skills in an environment different to that of their usual performances in care homes and SEND schools. The charity delivers training for outstanding early career musicians to provide exceptional live music experiences for people with limited access to the arts, due to disability, illness or social disadvantage – transforming and enriching lives. LMN Wales delivers over 300 performances a year, working in every Welsh county annually.

 

The work the musicians have done on the scheme will allow their confidence and talent to excel on stage by delivering their own personal performances, followed by incredible training sessions for aspiring musicians. The artists are overjoyed to each be delivering a training taster session, which aims to provide advice to young musicians present. The sessions will include beneficial training in areas of; performance skills, self-promotion, vocal technique and many more!

 

Performances will be taking place all afternoon and will feature a variety of music including singer/songwriter/guitarist John Nicholas (above), an experienced musician with a unique stage presence, using a loop pedal during his live performances. John recently beat over 12,000 hopefuls to come second in The Open Mic UK championships, while also winning the award for Best Original Song for the track ‘Better Things’. The Live Music Now stage will also hold many other musicians on the scheme such as, duo Jessica Robinson (soprano) and Llywelyn Ifan Jones (harpist). The pair will bring diversity in genre to Hub Festival, through their elegant, classical music which is always highly demanded from many care home residents in Wales. Jessica is a talented singer and has performed in New York, China and Italy, however her personal highlight was being asked to perform to the Welsh rugby team at the Welsh Assembly celebrating their success in the Six Nations Championship. Llywelyn is a compassionate, inspiring performer and his dedication to the arts has brought him numerous awards including; the Lyon and Healy Award, first prize winner at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and the winner of the Pencerdd Gwalia Competition.

 

Alongside LMN’s Welsh musicians, the UK charity is excited to welcome to the festival special guests Vocal Global (DavidX and Noga Ritter) from their London branch. This amazing duo will bring a great form of diversity to Live Music Now’s stage from their Middle East and French-Caribbean musical influences that strive to carry strong messages of cultural celebration. Vocal Global will surely entertain Hub’s audience with their variety of instruments including; violin, guitar, drums, congas, darbuka, tabla, brass, bass, piano and also DavidX’s incredible beat-boxing skills and Noga’s personal and emotional lyrics sung in Hebrew, English and Creole.

 

“We are extremely excited to be part of this year’s Hub Festival!”, comments Claire Cressey, director of Live Music Now Wales. “Our musicians are fully trained to deliver interactive performances, usually to residents of care homes and children within SEND schools, however this festival is an amazing opportunity for us to help inspiring musicians with their performance skills and to bring joy to the community!”
