Chestnut Tree House and Midwives and Parent Support (MAPS) are
two charities in the frontline of care
They depend on money raised through events and donations and I would be very
grateful for your help in promoting and supporting this charity blues night.
Saturday 16th June
Charity Blues Night
with Kit Holmes and The Crossroads Band
Losing a baby at childbirth or having a child with a life limiting illness is
traumatic and it is hard for parents and families come to terms with it.
Charities such as MAPS (Midwives and Parents Support) and
Chestnut Tree House provide tremendous practical and emotional support at
crucial times in the lives of families. MAPS was set up by Burgess Hill
midwife, Pam Parsons OBE and Chestnut Tree House is the only children?s hospice
in Sussex. They both rely on grants and donations to continue to provide care
and need financial support.
To help them continue their work there is a blues night on Saturday 16th June
(doors open 7.00pm) in the Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill featuring Kit Holmes
and The Crossroads Band UK.
The event is supported by the Burgess Hill Community Festival and all profits
will be going to both charities.
Tickets cost ?12.00 (?10.00 concessions) in advance / ?14.00 (?12.00
concessions) on the door and are available from the Martlets Box Office or
call 01444 242 888
or online via www.snowdropmusic.com
with a soul sensibility?
Kit?s sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across
the UK. Her music crosses many boundaries and her albums have received
rave reviews in the music and national press.
Recent concerts include: Paul McCartney?s LIPA; the Anne Frank Awards at the
BBC; a performance for Bill Bryson and Andy Kershaw and a headline show at
the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain. In 2011, Kit
released her eagerly anticipated third album, Driving into the Blue, which
features the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson, to high critical
acclaim. Expect an enthralling and energetic live performance from Kit
and her excellent band (guitar, fiddle, bass).
The Crossroads Band
When you have a front
man (Stuart Barbour) who produced and co wrote albums for Alvin Stardust, and
toured with Alvin for 6 years and a trumpet player who played with
Wham, Elton John and at Live Aid you know you are in for a treat. The band
call themselves a "faith blues band" playing a mix of original
songs and also tracks from people like Blind Willie Johnson, Stevie Ray
Vaughan and Buddy Guy.
