Bid for Midge Ure’s Classic Guitar
Midge Ure OBE – Guitar Auction Paisley 2014 – For Loud n Proud
It’s all happening this October in Paisley and the highlight for many is the Town Hall appearance by legendary Scottish musician and Ultravox front man Midge Ure.
We are thankful and privileged that Midge has agreed to support us at the Town Hall and not only that; he has donated one of his guitars too! It’s up for auction here so you can have a chance of owning it yourself.
An artist who has received Ivor Novello, Grammy, BASCAP awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction. Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol’s often quoted “fifteen minutes”, so the fact that by the time Midge’s single “If I Was” went to No1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career speaks volumes – Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one off group in musical history Band Aid had by then all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation.
In collaboration with JHS (John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd), Midge has very kindly donated a Vintage Lemon Drop Electric Guitar for us to auction to raise funds for Loud N Proud, and it’s signed by the man himself. What a thrill it was when we met up with Midge at The Glasgow Hydro Ryder Cup Gala performance recently, just before he took to the stage in a stunning performance of “Vienna” and “If I was”.
He agreed to meet up with us to sign the guitar and have a chat about what we do. The auction is very simple – fill in your details here and make your bid.
The highest bid will win the guitar – auction closes on Friday November 14th. Good luck and thanks for your support. LNP Promotions exists to support our charity – loud n proud – for local young people to access and learn music, leading them to music and employment opportunities as well as growing as individuals making a positive contribution to their community and society in general..
