Peter Crawford - 24 Gigs, 24 Hours

 One of the things I like to do when I can, is show some support for local musicians, upcoming bands, people whose music NEEDS to be heard. Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing Cornish singer/songwriter, Peter Crawford, at one of his shows in Exeter, and I thought it was about time he got a little more recognition!

Not only is Peter Crawford a talented musician, he's also gearing up to raise money for a great cause. On April 23rd, he will be performing 24 gigs in 24 hours in and around Plymouth to raise much needed funds for the Devon & Cornwall Air Ambulances Trusts. Anyone who has ever seen the Air Ambulance at work will know what a worthwhile cause this is but the cost of keeping these life-saving helicopters running is millions of pounds, so they really rely on generosity to keep them going.

This is where you could help. You see, it isn't just locals who rely on the Devon & Cornwall Air Ambulances. Every year, masses of tourists flock to the Westcountry to enjoy the beautiful beaches and get some fresh, country air. Having worked in the tourist industry for a while in my youth, I saw the Air Ambulance called out several times, to offer aid to people who were visiting the area. Lives were saved because generous people from all over chipped in to keep the helicopters in the air.

24 gigs in 24 hours won't be easy, but Peter has his route all mapped out, and he's ready to entertain in the name of charity! So, if you want to offer some support, you can do so here.

Also, if you happen to be in the area, here is a guide to where you can see Peter on the big day. Why not come out and enjoy some excellent tunes?
