Yorkshire-musician Tim Moon is on a charitable musical mission as he aims to complete a 150-mile walk from Blackpool to Filey, in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
This tremendous challenge will see the musician walking for nine days. His goal is to be always singing or playing a bouzouki for the entirety of the 150 miles.
Tim Moon has supported folk band The Fairport Convention and has played music professionally since around 1978. His long career has seen his music aired on the radio and he has played Glastonbury festival twice.
This talented musician can play 100 instruments, from the piano to the sitar. His huge list of instruments he can play ranges through most instrument groups, everything from strings to brass to reed. Naturally during his nine-day run, he will be sticking to one instrument, a lightweight bouzouki, which for the rest of us is a small string instrument, similar to a mandolin.
The 150-mile walk will take him from the west coast to the east, beginning at Blackpool, and ending at Filey. On May 26th he will leave Blackpool and travel to Mellor Brook through Kirkham and Preston. On May 27th he will head to Burnley, then Skipton the following day. He will then travel through Harrogate, York, Malton, Scarborough and arrive in Filey on June 3rd.
For those kind Yorkshire folk looking to get involved, you can donate at www.justgiving.com/tim-moon. Or for an alternative way of giving, you can offer your accommodation. Moon is hoping kind supporters will offer him a place to stay and wash at the end of each day so he can keep cost to a minimum and focus on all proceeds going to The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. If you’ve got a spare room for this devoted musician, you can offer your accommodation on his website.
