On Friday, September 5th 2014, Leeds band The Dunwells spent some time busking on Kirkgate in Leeds City Centre for The Big Issue in the North Trust. The band was due to play a gig at Leeds’ The Wardrobe that evening and they took some time out after their soundcheck to raise awareness of and funds for the work of The Trust.
The band which consists of brothers Joe and Dave Dunwell and Jonny Lamb and Rob Clayton played five songs starting with their amazing new song “Show Me Emotion” which was released on Monday September 8th 2014. The Dunwells were well received by the Leeds public and members of staff of The Big Issue in the North Trust chatted to many people about their work with the vendors. A special thanks goes to bass player Rob who could not play his instrument due to lack of amplification but joined in distributing stickers and collecting funds! We are grateful for The Dunwell’s support and hope to maintain a relationship with them in the future.
