Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help fund the creation of a brand new music group - The Nans - we're all grandmothers!
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am asking for funding to support the creation, performance and promotion of music, written and performed by a new group 'The Nans' - a group of women who are all seasoned, brilliant performers, and all grandmothers. I want to show that women over 50 can still rock, and not just on rocking chairs. I need funding to spend time writing the music, and pay rehearsal, recording and performance costs. I have 30 years experience as a musician - bands and solo and song writing.
In a business dominated by young talent, I want to show that older women musicians have a lifetime of musical wisdom and experience to share.
The USP of the project is: the band are all nans. Wrinkles mean experience, not the end of the line. Audiences expecting archetypal 'grannies' will be confounded- we may be older women, but we are not 'past it', not by a long way. We won't be just an all-female band, we will be grannies, matriarchs - we were once punks, ravers, doyennes of dance and world music, and we can still play music as well as we ever did. We will be a publicist's dream, with our combined histories, and we can inspire audiences because everybody loves their nan. We will perform at ten nationwide venues strategically picked to get maximum media coverage and audience take-up.
