Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
My wife has had Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) for 20 years which has increased in severity gradually over time. She has been bed-bound for the last 3 years. I am her main carer. I have previously written a song (Ball with no bounce) for ME sufferers and their carers which was well received by people who know about the illness. They say it hits the spot! It has a chorus that says "What makes them think you need a shrink - to make you better"!
I play as either a solo artist (Andy Bob Beaumont) or with my brother and his son (The Beaumont Brothers) and with a blues/jazz/rock band (The Scapegoats). As my musical activities have increased over the last few years and I'm doing quite a lot of gigs I've decided to donate all profits from my musical activities to the M.E. Association.
This Just Giving page is updated from a previous "Ball with no bounce" page which raised over £500. The page now has a more ambitious target of £3000
I have a website where my musical activities and gigs are detailed: www.andybobbeaumont.com
and my song "Ball with no bounce" can be found on my "Shed Songs" album at:
Any other musicians who have M.E. or friends/relatives with M.E. or who care for an M.E. sufferer and who want to chip in by donating some of their gig income to this page - please feel very welcome to do so!
