Fund-raising concert for refugees at Wentworth Falls

The Bridge Project will be on stage for the first time in their six-year career in a fundraising concert on April 7.

The Bridge Project have completed three albums together but never performed on stage as a band. They are three exceptional musicians from completely disparate backgrounds. Ittai Shaked is an Israeli Jew living in Tel Aviv, Umit Ceyhan is a Turkish Moslem by birth living in Toulouse, France (where he went as a refugee and is now a French citizen) and Andy Busuttil is a Maltese Catholic by birth now residing in the Blue Mountains.

They will be joined by Asian/Australian Buddhist Hayden Chee, also living in the Mountains.

Also on the double bill is Asylum, a band put together by Busuttil to raise awareness of the plight of asylum seekers and refugees in detention.

This concert is being hosted by the Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group. It will be held on Friday, April 7 at 8pm at the Wentworth Falls School of Arts. Tickets at The Turning Page, Springwood, and Megalong Books in Leura.
