City Voices Festival of words and music
March 2009 – Looking for Folk / Cajun Bands.
City Voices is an Arts Council funded project from Stoke on Trent in Staffordshire. We meet fortnightly at Central Library, Hanley to write and perform our creative writing. We are currently organising our third festival to be held in late March 2009.
The last two festivals of words and music have been very successful and have been supported by such well - known artists as the Boat Band and the Trent Vale Poet. We have enjoyed coverage in the local press and are committed to making this festival even bigger and better than the previous ones.
Although the group mostly consists of poets and authors, there are also a number of musicians, and we would like to widen in this direction in the future. We are looking for talented musicians or bands, which are willing to perform at this Festival of words and music for free. All proceeds at the Festival will go directly to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, which I am sure you will agree is a very well deserved local charity that is close to a lot of our hearts. I am sure it will get plenty of positive publicity in the local press, and I hope you will join us in helping to raise not only our own profile but your own, while helping this fantastic organisation to prosper and help many more families in the area..
