FAC Advocate Artist ShaoDow on why He’s Supporting give a gig:
'I had the opportunity to visit one of the community projects supported by Youth Music and could see the massively positive effects it was having on the young people. I'm slightly jealous there wasn't anything like this available to me when I was younger, In any case, projects like these and organisations like Youth Music should be celebrated and protected. That's why I'm getting involved with Give A Gig Week in order to help raise some awareness and hopefully some money too. '
