Preview: Music Minds Matter at The Library

The Library is hosting a charity gig for Music Minds Matter on 26 May at 7.30 p.m.

Music Minds Matter is a helpline for the music community in the UK.  Trained staff are on hand to offer advice and emotional support to those with mental health problems.

Indie rock bands Atlanta House, The Common Dogs and four-piece retro power pop group, The Harriets, will perform live at this 200 person capacity venue above the Library in the heart of Leeds.

Proceeds from the gig will be used by Music Minds Matter to improve its services and increase awareness of mental illness in the UK.  You can join the mission to help sufferers by supporting the gig.

Phil Clay, General Manager of The Library, said: “The charity is important to us because the life of a musician can often be stressful and isolating and mental health in the music industry is something that needs a more vocal and obvious support network.  What better way to raise money for the cause, than through the power of music.”
