Southport Kidney Fund Acoustica 2009 Is A Hit
Kidney Fund, on 4 July 2009, put on their annual event, called the
SKF Acoustica, again this year on The Bandstand, on Lord Street,
next to the Vincent Hotel. This was the third time they have
done this live music event, and what a show it was.
The event was aimed
at raising awareness of Kidney Disease and the need for organ
donors. All the money raised at this event goes to helping kidney
research and supporting those affected by the disease.
Luckily for the
charity, the weather was mostly dry, but sadly, the last two bands
on the bandstand had the heavens open on them. This did not put the
audience off, but they did run for cover under the trees and also
under the boulevards.
This event involved a
large range of different types of acoustic music. Playing at the SKF
Acoustica 2009, were the following bands:- Krystina, Feelin' Groovy,
Northern Daze, Cheap Cuts, The Aviators, The Arkanes and Dante Fox.
Also at the event, a prize draw took place with lots of fantastic
Well done and we look
forward to next year's event.
