SINGER and social justice advocate Levi McGrath will perform in Bathurst this weekend.
McGrath, who aims to motivate and inspire people to stand up and make a difference, will perform a free concert at C3 Church on Saturday night.
The performer is passionate about bringing music to disadvantaged and isolated young people and is involved in two projects to do so.
Instruments For The Outback aims to engage with young indigenous musicians and give them opportunities to perform, record and be mentored by professional musicians, while Instruments For Ethiopia is a similar project to help homeless and marginalised street-children in Addis Ababa.
McGrath began his professional music career in 2007 and, in 2009, spent six months living in Uganda working with former child soldiers.
This trip led to his critically acclaimed album Children Of War, which was described as being rich in passion for social change and heart-rending stories of suffering, hope and dignity.
McGrath, who regularly tours Australia, New Zealand and Europe, believes there is much work to be done and music to be made to help turn the tide of poverty, apathy and human suffering.
His concert will be held at C3 Church at the rear of 217 Howick Street this Saturday, September 15 from 7pm.
Entry will be free, supper will be free and all ages are welcome.
Donations will be taken on the night to support McGrath and his social justice projects.
