A unique chance to see Solana and Young Waters in an intimate setting, raising money for the amazing charity Help Musicians UK.
HELP MUSICIANS UK
"We offer practical, positive support to emerging, professional and retired musicians – whatever the genre. Specifically, we help emerging professionals to develop their talent and get started in a professional career. We help existing professionals who hit a crisis in their lives which can have a devastating effect on their career and families. We help with long-term or terminal illness and we help musicians in retirement and those needing special help as they grow older."
Since their formation in Valencia in 2012, original fusion project Solana have been enchanting listeners with their rhythmically complex and harmonically rich sound inspired by folk traditions from around the world.
