On Sunday July 1st, a fundraiser for My First Recorder Studios will take place at Auntie Annies featuring Robert Holmes, Dan Bardon aka Nature Studies, Scream Blue Murmur, The Tribe and Colm McIntyre from Concrete Circus, all of whom have worked closely with Simon Mateer from My First Recorder Studios.
MFR Recordings is a Belfast based recording studio founded by Simon, who works tirelessly to offer prime recording facilities for the cheapest rates possible. Simon is a musician, producer and engineer as well as being a supporter of local musicians. He is also responsible, along with Dan Bardon, for Skyliner, the most exciting musical event in Belfast at the moment.
Recently Simon’s studio was robbed, taking vital equipment and money needed to pay rent and bank loans.
MFR Recordings has already worked with local talent such as – Kasper Rosa, Farriers, Howlin Widow, Girls Names, Sea Pinks, Documenta Drone Pop, Gacys Threads, Tom McShane, Isobel Anderson, and more. It is an essential part of the Belfast music community.
Please show your support by coming along on July 1st. We are asking everyone to donate £5 to help make sure that Simon’s studio stays open and local musicians have a resource which allows them an avenue for regular recorded output.
