ICMP is to host an Unplugged event with special guest Longy to showcase student talent and help raise money for Fibromyalgia Action UK and Music for Mental Wealth.
Taking place on Wednesday 17th January at ICMP, the event will see six student acts perform as well as special guest Longy.
Longy is a one-time busker who, since April 2017, has made it his mission to perform 500 gigs of his so-called ‘gospel trash’.
Abbie Prior, ICMP alumna, was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. She said: "Fibromyalgia Action UK is the leading UK charity for the condition, yet there are a small number of donations made in aid due to a lack of knowledge.
"It is so important to raise awareness and money for Fibromyalgia because there is currently no known cure, so it relies solely on a research breakthrough. Like anything, this requires money."
"Living with Fibromyalgia is challenging, frustrating and incredibly painful therefore fundraising is crucial to help save patients from suffering for the rest of their lives, which is the current outlook if nothing is done. I would love to be able to live my life to it’s full potential one day."
Longy will also be taking part in a Q&A with our Careers Service, The Hub as part of his appearance. The event will be sponsored by Ernie Ball with goody bags also available on the day.
The full line up is:
11:00am Pham Thanh Chung
12:00pm Lorenzo Chiarini
12.30pm LONGY + Q&A with the Hub
1.45pm Maddy Rose
2.15pm Janik Setz
Students can also book a free fitting slot with Read audio on the 17th during the event and receive a 20 percent discount off their hearing protection systems with their student card.
