Wiltshire Mind is holding a concert on Friday 30th June in Melksham, with all proceeds going to support their services locally.
The special charity concert is being held by acclaimed singer-songwriter Emily Maguire in aid of Wiltshire Mind, hosted by kind permission of the Kings Arms Hotel, Melksham. The event will start at 8pm on 30th June (doors open 7.30pm) at the King’s Arms, Market Place, Melksham.
Emily is best-known for her strong, thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and stunning live performances, Emily’s songs have been played regularly on Radio 2 and have won her fans across the globe.
After living in a shack in Australia where she made her first two albums, Emily returned to the UK to tour with American legend Don McLean and make her third album ‘Believer’, a ‘masterpiece’ according to Maverick Country Music magazine.
As an advocate for mental health, Emily has been featured several times on Radio 4 including Woman’s Hour, Loose Ends and Midweek, where she was interviewed by Libby Purves talking about her book ‘Start Over Again’.
Living with bipolar disorder herself, Emily has done many gigs in mental health hospitals and for Mind groups. She has just published ‘Notes From The North Pole’, a new book of poetry, prose and song lyrics, and released her hauntingly beautiful fifth album ‘A Bit Of Blue’, which has been receiving rave reviews in the music press. A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist, Emily is truly ‘a talent to be reckoned with’ (R2 Magazine).
