Great Night of Blues

Philip was delighted to be able to help out Dora Loewenstein and her company DLA who were organising a major Save The Children fundraiser at the Roundhouse in Camden on Wednesday 29th February – he wrote some copy for the brochure that supported the event. A Night Of Blues was a fabulous evening of blues, featuring New Orleans’ finest Dr John, great harmonica from Adam Gussow and the genuinely legendary James Cotton, soul singer Jocelyn Brown going back to her North Carolina blues roots and Maceo Parker blowing the soul out of his sax – along with guest appearances from Ronnie Wood and K.T. Tunstall (above - photo by James Yeats-Brown). The event, attended by Samantha Cameron, Erin O’Connor, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham-Carter amongst others, raised over a million pounds through tickets sales and auction items: the highest price of the evening the £150,000 successfully bid for a Marc Quinn oil painting.
