It’s all about the love as Limerick based band Hermitage Green are giving up their valentines night to play a very special gig in aid of Mid-West Spina Bifida Association.The popular band, who are fast becoming one of Limerick’s best known exports on the music scene, only rarely get to play in Limerick and this event is tipped to be one of the music events of the year in the Treaty City.
The band will perform an unplugged version of their music at The Orchard Bar Doors are at 7pm on February 14th and will offer an insight into their music and inspirations as they answer questions from the crowd. This very special event has a limited number of tickets on sale. Tickets are €20 and there also will be a fundraising raffle taking place on the night.
Michelle Daly Hayes, Development Manager at the charity said, “We at the Mid-West Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association are delighted to have Hermitage Green here to offer this unique fundraiser. The guys have been so helpful and 100% of the ticket price is going to the charity, we are only 40% funded by the HSE so we are hoping this event will help us to carry on providing our vital services for our members. We also have Spin South West on board as a sponsor to help get the word out to music fans in the region. Which is fantastic news,” she finished.
Mid-West Spina Bifida work with 106 families with members who have Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary. The charity has been in existence since 1982 and provides vital services such as physiotherapy, family support and counselling to those with the condition which causes incomplete development of the spinal cord. The effects of the condition vary from profound physical and intellectual disability to milder disabilities,” she said.
