Fundraiser to support earthquake families – Friday March 17

A strong and diverse line up of talent has been selected to support fund raising for the Turkish/Syrian earthquake appeal.

This edge-of-stadium concert starts at 7.00 pm, and, says organiser Tony Howson, everyone taking part is an energetic headliner, creating an eclectic mix of music and spoken words.

“The music ranges from traditional Turkish drumming, to rock, blues, jazz, folk and beatbox. The spoken word is a variation of poetry and storytelling, some in English, others in colourful splashes of Turkish and Kurdish language. So there will be a variation of theme and pace. But it all works towards one thing.

“This event is designed to raise funds for the earthquake region, so people can get help and maintain dignity after such a traumatic event. It has cost a lot of lives, it has meant people are homeless and unable to live normal lives. Livelihoods have been destroyed. We want people to come out of this with dignity.”


Taking part will be:


The London Bendir Group – From Turkey, based in London, a popular group of drummers and their teacher. They do this because they love it.


The Four Feathers – Based in South London, they play original protest music, inspired by classical, roots, reggae and rock. Guitars, drums and bongos – what more could you want.

Ruth and Dave make up the popular North London duo, That Blue Patch – More jazz, blues, roots, country sounds. Not all played at the same time, but they make good use of Guitar, Ukulele, Irish Bouzouki, Banjo, Voice, Saxophone, Melodica, Accordion and Percussion. Their songs go back to the 1920s and onwards towards modern times.

Tony Howson comes from the UK but lives in Turkey with his Turkish family. Their holiday home is currently being used as a transit point to help Earthquake survivors pause, settle and decide their next steps with dignity.

 He is also a performer, poet and storyteller, photographer, journalist, musician and organiser of this fund raising event.

He said:” There should be something for everybody during this event, and from all aspects of it there is an experience to be had.

“But the aim is to say thank you to those who have worked hard to raise support for those caught up in these tragic events, and, to raise some more money so that lifeline can continue.”

He added: “I look forward to seeing you at 7.00 pm at Fieldseat / Kit@pEvi on Friday March 17. Make it a good night out, all join in. These have been traumatic times, for those inside the earthquake zone, but also for the families, friends across Turkey, across Europe and in London. So we take a deep breath and plan now for the future.”

The pain of Turkey and Syria’s earthquakes have shaken North London. Eighty per cent of its Turkish-rooted community is estimated to have been directly impacted by the shock.

Many have lost loved ones. Many have family and friends left homeless. Overall, more than 48,000 people were killed. Millions are said to be in need of humanitarian support.

Turkish-owned Fieldseat organic café and shop has opened its downstairs theatre doors to a fundraise to support the earthquake survivors.

Event organiser Tony Howson – whose family is Turkish – said: “This event has four purposes. The first is to continue to raise funds to help those people left homeless, so they can survive with dignity.

“But also it is to say thank you to all the London-based fundraisers for the work they have done, and, to encourage them to keep on raising money and supplies that are so urgently needed.

“Fundraising is demanding but freely given. I think I also want this event to help those who have been effected, those trying to do something, to share the stress they are experiencing.  And for others who are their neighbours and friends to say we are with you.”

The event will be help on March 17, starting at 7.00 pm.

It will feature London duo That Blue Patch, playing jazz, blues, country and roots music; the four-piece band Four Feathers;  poet and musician Leyla Aslan, Tony Howson, musician, poet and storyteller, and poet, actor, children’s book writer, Felix Hodcroft. There is also an opportunity for those who want to stand up and perform to get behind the mic.
