Editors notes:

Lisa Kwei: Singer/Songwriter/Parkinson’s UK Fundraiser quotes:

‘My passion for the both Parkinson’s UK as a charity and my music run hand in hand. My father is an 8-year sufferer and I’ve actually been a singer/songwriter for 8 years so it seemed to fit that my music could make a difference to my father’s life and many others.

When our first live Event for the concept music for life was put together my first thought was to ask the legendary Sam Brown (who taught me backing vocal classes at ACM, Guildford) to please endorse us and come along to perform too. She’s an inspiration to me as an Artist and it made total sense to me.’

‘Charity and Art go hand in hand, and both must be protected at any cost.’
Lisa Kwei is an acclaimed Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist whose first self-released album ‘The Girl You Left Behind’ gained her many fans around the world, who honed her craft in pubs and clubs across the country. A recommendation followed from Music Publisher: Richard Jackson-Bass head of SPEEGRA, to independent label and management company, Thoroughbredmusic owner- Adrian Collis.

Pure Fluke featuring Sam Brown:

'Formed in 2014 as a splinter group of the Fabulous Miss Sam Brown's 'International Ukulele Club of Sonning Common', Pure Fluke is a group comprising ukuleles, clarinet, melodica, harmonica, bass and voices. Dedicated to merriment and music, Pure Fluke play songs from all eras, with a happy emphasis on the 20's 30's and 40' well as putting a twist on famed and obscure modern classics.

A rambunctious and motley crew of unexpected talent, they never fail to cheer!’

About Parkinson's

• Parkinson's is a degenerative neurological condition, for which there currently is no cure.
• People with Parkinson’s don’t have enough of a chemical called dopamine because certain nerve cells in their brain have died.
