Community Sessions

The Sound Sniffer’s regular London showcases raising funds for the homeless

The idea of Community Sessions was hatched by Kevin in the summer of 2021, based on the success of ‘The Ruby Sessions’ in his homeland of Dublin. The gig night is not for profit, all artists performing are paid and every attendee is encouraged to donate a small cash donation to the events chosen charity on the night. The gig take place twice monthly (1st and 3rd Sunday of every month) in the wonderful music room at The Finsbury in Manor House.

The first ever gig (Community #1) went ahead on Sunday September 19th 2021.

All cash raised at the gigs goes to ‘All People All Places‘ – a local homeless charity doing great work in North London.

Read an article Kevin wrote about the project’s origins below:
