The wait is nearly over! Rehearsals are well and truly underway for Strummin’ Sweet 16!
To celebrate their 16th Anniversary, the Strummin’ team are truly back with a bang. Anyone who is interested in attending will surely be in for a treat – with over 60 guitarists, together with the band and fantastic singers, expect a night filled with timeless classics from Queen and Pink Floyd, Classic Rock by Iron Maid and Pink Floyd, and also a couple of contemporary hits by Ed Sheeran and Of Monsters and Men.
Strummin’ has truly left its mark within the Maltese cultural scene during the last 15 years. Besides promising to take attendees on a journey through music every year, Strummin’ takes the opportunity to donate the money made from ticket proceeds to worthy causes. Over the last few years, Strummin’ has helped Dar Frate Jacoba, Puttinu Cares, Malta Community Chest Fund and Dr Klown to name a few.

This year, Strummin’ has come up with a new challenge – all proceeds will be invested into setting up the Strummin’ Foundation. Music can change moods and also lives – this will be the objective of the Strummin’ Foundation. A safe and fun environment will be provided to children, teens and anyone who might need it through the power of music. This will mainly be achieved through giving free guitar lessons on the guitars that will be made use of during the lessons.
The concert is spread over two days – the 20th and 21st October 2017. You can head to https://shop.trackagescheme.com/event/strummin-sweet-16-friday/ to purchase your tickets. They’re selling fast, so don’t miss out!
Those who attend the concert and buy raffle tickets will be in the chance of winning one of two Revstar guitars that have been generously sponsored by Olimpus Music LTD.
