Tick­ets to mu­sic gig for men­tal health

West Lothian Courier - - News -

Four bands will take to the West Loth­ian stage this month for a gig in sup­port of men­tal health.

Life Model, Adull­boy, Id­kid and Mad ro­dents will play Boghall Par­ish Church on satur­day, septem­ber 30, in con­nec­tion with Artlink whose Ley­lines project hosts cre­ative con­nec­tions for men­tal health in West Loth­ian.

the gig was or­gan­ised by lo­cal res­i­dent Pe­ter John­stone who said: “I wanted to bring fresh scot­tish tal­ent to a small town in West Loth­ian where I come from.

“I wanted to give oth­ers in­cred­i­ble live mu­sic with­out the need to get to the city cen­tres. Mu­sic is help­ful in so many ways, it brings us out of our­selves and is a con­nec­tion with oth­ers. Creativ­ity is a joy and an es­capism.”

tick­ets to the gig are free but there is a sug­gested do­na­tion of £3 to the arts and dis­abil­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Chris smith, from Life Model, said: “It’s im­por­tant to take any op­por­tu­nity to raise aware­ness and re­duce the stigma that sur­rounds men­tal health and get more peo­ple to talk about it.”

tick­ets for the con­cert, which will be on be­tween 7pm to 10.30pm, are avail­able from http://bit.ly/2wsCs1k.
