MTL Musicians Unite for Women in Need

MTL Musicians Unite for Women in NeedNaghmeh and the Southern Shores

Love is in the air; Montreal’s musical community is uniting for a good cause! On March 14, three of Montreal’s best emerging artists will present a benefit concert for Logifem, a charity that provides shelter and care to women and children in difficulty in Montreal.

Held at Turbo Haüs (2040 rue Saint-Denis), the concert will feature the exotic stylings of Naghmeh Shafiei and her band, The Southern Shores. Canadian country soul/Americana singer-songwriter Melissa Plett and Montreal-based soul/R&B singer-songwriter Andria Piperni will also be performing.

Southern Shores drummer Donald Pinkerton was the mastermind of this event. For him, it’s about more than charity. “When #MeToo first broke in the media, I was shocked to see the extent of the problems that women face,” he said. “As the father of two boys, 12 and 17, I wanted to show them that men have a role to play in the healing process.”

That’s when Donald discovered Logifem and started volunteering there with his sons.

 

Logifem shelters women and children in need, with room for as many as 20 women at a time, with or without children. Residents are admitted to the shelter on an emergency basis for one or two nights, or on a longer term basis for up to a year. They also have access to fourteen transitional apartments where women with or without children can stay for up to three years.

Donald’s idea to create a benefit concert was a natural decision for Naghmeh and the Southern Shores. As a team, they found willing participants in Montreal’s musical community, booked a venue and set up the donation platform independently. This grass-roots effort will see 100% of proceeds going directly to Logifem. 

Advance tickets (limited quantities available at $20) can be purchased through Facebook’s fundraising tool, ensuring that as much as possible of the proceeds will go directly to Logifem. Click here for tickets.
