Gig novices turn up for recovery

Reason Digital bring TUFR to Manchester, UK

January 14, 2020

Reason Digital, a social enterprise based in Manchester, UK who have been supporting Melia Clapton and her team to set up Turn Up For Recovery, turned their hand to gig organising to raise money for the cause.

Karys Moffat, lead guitarist in Wonkypuss, and Amy Johnson, who both work for Reason Digital, took centre stage at the gig with both artists performing original songs. Also performing were Joe Courtney, a talented guitarist and vocalist, and Isaac Hughes-Dennis, who performed with both a ukulele and an electric kazoo, (possibly the only in existence!)

The gig was held at local music venue, The Peer Hat, which generously donated the space for free as it was a Tuesday night.

Tickets were sold on a “pay as you feel” policy, with over £500 raised in total.

The event proves that anyone can hold a gig with a little help from some friends and the support of Turn Up For Recovery.
