Unless you’ve had your head under a pillow for the last two years, you’ll know about Andreas Varady, a staggeringly-talented 12-year-old jazz guitarist who lives in Limerick.
We’ve been trying to get Andreas sorted out, and now he’s on his way to New York for tuition at Skidmore College, but he’s still playing an electrified plank through a kettle.
The guitar is on the way but Andreas still needs an amp suitable to his gift.
Here’s the deal.
If you’d like to kick in a few shillings, even five or ten euros, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with some contact details and somebody will contact you in confidence.
Do this. The kid is outstanding. It won’t cost you much and you’ll be doing a big thing for music. And for this great musician.
