One Day Festival is a day of free music and entertainment in order to raise awareness of and funds for St Luke’s Hospice. The reason for the festival and its name? Well…
One Day my world fell apart. One Day I was diagnosed with cancer and I had to tell my partner, my children, my family and my friends. One Day I went to the hospital and had a tumour removed, had radiotherapy, had lymphedema treatment at St Luke’s Hospice. One day I walked away from the hospital with a new outlook on life. One day it might happen to you….
So, to soundtrack this day of fun and fundraising we will need the right music. The following fine examples of humanity have signed up to play in support of this noble cause and there are more to come so come along, bring the family and enjoy the sounds of:
The Busketeers - A trio of gents from Plymouth who all sing, play guitar and provide beats on an impressive array of covers and original tunes. Need to be seen/heard to be believe/appreciated. https://www.facebook.com/
Phat Bollard - If you've ever been in a city centre and heard a group of gents busking like their lives depended on it but with a glint in their eyes then you've probably heard Phat Bollard. They are ace and will get even the most static dancing. https://www.facebook.com/
Jamie Yost – Plymouth based singer-songwriter with a hugely soulful voice and even bigger talent, bashing out songs on his beaten up guitar. https://www.facebook.com/
Joanna Cooke– The unique talents of Joanna Cooke need to be heard to be believed and fully appreciated, especially if you like soul based pop with a hint of jazz and blues.
