Songs for Belarus
July 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
A wonderful array of musicians and poets will perform at Highgate’s beautiful Lauderdale House on 9th July to raise funds to help families of political prisoners suffering under the brutal Belarusian regime.
For almost three years now, the people of Belarus have suffered increasingly harsh repressive measures under dictator Lukashenko and for families of political prisoners life is very hard. To raise funds to aid these innocent victims, leading Belarusian poet Hanna Komar is bringing together a terrific line-up of musicians and poets for an uplifting evening of music and poetry entitled ‘Songs for Belarus’.
“I know what it means to be a political prisoner and how much difference supporting their families can make,” says Hanna, who was herself imprisoned after the protests, then forced to flee to London.
Besides music and poetry, there’s an auction for lots including masterclasses in cocktail making to writing books from one of the world’s most published authors.
Artists include: Rachel Sutton, Anthony Cable (Aspects of Love), Alex Schmerechanska (Voice of Poland), Mazaika, Dan March (Pramface, Johnny English), Helen Schlesinger (Merlin, Sensitive Skin, RSC), Clare Summerskill, Kristin Milward (Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant), Mark Coverdale
