After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Music for Mental Health returns to Dolans Warehouse. The popular fundraising and mental health awareness event has been adapted to a Matinee Gig starting at 4pm on Sunday January 16th 2022.
“We felt it was really important to go ahead with the event,” said Karl Daly, founder of Humanli. Due to the ongoing pandemic, raising awareness and funds for charities is critical. Also, our performers want to perform, so we’ve done our best to make the event viable and safe for all.”
Leah Barniville, a classically trained soprano who reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent at the age of 14, and local sensation Emma Langford are among the fantastic line-up of acts. Susan O’Neill has written a song especially for the occasion. The Lost Boys, Afro-Pop, and Stray Saints have also been confirmed.
All-Star Mary Hulgraine will talk about her mental health struggles, and Meghann Scully, a journalist and author, will interview the charities.
Music for Mental Health is a social impact event that brings together artists, businesses, and charities. All artists perform for free, and proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Humanli family’s seven charities. Clare’s Wish Foundation, Corpus Christi Primary School, Limerick Suicide Watch and Blue Box Creative Arts Therapy.
Karl Daly’s Music for Mental Health concert is in its fourth year. First held in January 2018, Music for Mental Health was a one-off fundraiser. But it was so successful that it raised €57,500 in three years for suicide prevention, domestic abuse support, and educational advancement.
Limited tickets are now available on Eventmaster.
for an afternoon of inspiring music. Tickets will likely sell out quickly due to limited supply.
According to Karl Daly, “This event is about raising awareness of mental health issues and available supports while raising funds for organisations that work at the coalface every day.” January can be a depressing month for many, we need to lift each other up.”
