I was asked to perform a few songs this week for #coffee4Craig a homeless charity in St Annes Square in Manchester town. It was under the banner of #poetscorner put on by AMP an events collective based in Manchester who produce theme based arts and culture events and workshops focused on community outreach. Here’s a couple of snippets of how it turned out filmed by my 13 year old steady hand son Pip. I never knew my voice was so loud!
It’s really shocking the treatment and press homeless are getting. Fines for accepting food from people, fines for actively begging. I mean, how the hell are they supposed to pay a fine. Support them in any way you can people. Peace and understanding.
