Craig David is one of the artists taking part in this year’s Youth Music Give A Gig Week, which takes place next month.

Launched last year, the event sees Youth Music ask artists to perform in aid of the music education charity. The aim is to have around 100 fundraising shows taking place over the space of a week.

“I’m very happy to be part of Give A Gig Week from as far away as LA, where I’ll be making a donation from my shows there to support the great work Youth Music does”, says Craig David. “Music has transformed my life and I want all young people to have the chance to develop their musical creativity and achieve their ambitions”.

He continues: “Youth Music has been providing these kinds of opportunities for years to young people facing difficult circumstances in their lives. I applaud the charity’s emphasis on diversity and gender equality, and share its belief that all young people should have access to music-making regardless of background, gender or circumstances. I wish Youth Music every success with Give A Gig Week and hope others will join me in supporting their valuable work”.

As well as David, artists taking part this year include Pixie Lott, The Wombats, Newton Faulkner, Dream Wife and Femme.

Lott, who will be curating a show with singer-songwriter Jocee, says: “Youth Music and I share a common interest in giving young musicians an opportunity to develop their musical creativity and talent. The charity does great work supporting young people who face difficult challenges in their lives which is why I’m very happy to be taking part in Give A Gig Week”.

Give A Gig Week 2018 takes place from 16-25 Mar. Find out more here.
