I am involved with a childrens charity and for the last five years most of my work has been with children.
Some of you may know that I give talks on Australia and it's indigenous people. I have had no work for months and months and got close to giving up music completely.
However I have now got a series of events including a fairly major stage appearance and need to get atleast one new instrument to make it work.
I am in the UK and there seems to be little or no funding for what I do.
I have six weeks to performance day.
