Master musician Gary Blair has just come back from a tour in Siberia of all places. Today he told us about a really talented young Russian blind boy he met who loves the accordion but whose family just does not have enough money to get him an instrument. Currently the lad is able to borrow a second hand accordion for just three days a week to practice on. Gary was so taken by the boy, his personality, his ability and circumstances, he has launched a crowd funding project to help this young musician out. The target is £8,000 and with just 34 backers the amount already raised at the time of writing this article is £1,226.
If you would like to help please visit the fundraising page Gary has set up at www.crowdfunder.co.uk where you can make your pledge.
