Lost Souls have teamed up with St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice to showcase a night of local live music
On Saturday 26th April from 7 pm – midnight, at the Platform, Engine shed, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice will be hosting ‘Lost Souls and Friends – A night for St Barnabas.
Lost Souls are a 5 piece electro rock n roll band from Lincoln City, who formed in January 2009.
“Their sound is unique in the true sense of the word. Fusing a traditional Brit-rock sound with elements of electronica to create a sound no one has heard on a national scale, let alone a local one.”
— BBC Introducing
Kicking off the night is ‘Pheasants and Their Enemies’ a Lincoln based duo aiming to bring English Country/Folk to the mainstream with their unique take on the modern twenty-something’s life. Lost Souls are stripping it back and performing a special acoustic set. Making their live debut is The Percussion Guns – a fresh NEW rock n roll band and headlining is the awesome band ‘recruiT. Their passion is to create music that will make people sing and dance.
Michael McKiernan, song writer and base player from Lost Souls said:
“The reason I wanted to get involved in helping to raise funds for the hospice is due to being personally touched by the great work they do. My best friend Craig Frayne’s mother Trish was cared for by the hospice in her final weeks in December 2013”
Michael concludes: “Trish’s daughter Claire Frayne approached me on behalf of Lost Souls to see if we would arrange an event in memory of Trish and the many helped by the hospice. This is the perfect way to say thank you and help raise some funds towards the care the hospice provide”
Becky otter, Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:
“I was delighted when old friends Michael McKiernan and Andy Brown approached me about the event. Whether it’s thousands of people in Wembley Stadium for Live Aid or a few dozen in the back room of your local pub, music and charity have always gone hand-in-hand.
“There’s so much musical talent in Lincoln, I am really looking forward to watching all the bands on the bill. Claire Frayne has been donated a 3D 47 inch LG TV from Knowhow which will be auctioned on the night and a mini iPad can also be won in the raffle. We are hoping to raise £2,500 at the event.”
