Lockdown Sessions 2020 Raises Thousands For Blue Family

Everton's Blue Family campaign has benefitted to the tune of almost £5,000 after fans generously backed the Club's first virtual music event, Lockdown Sessions 2020.

Tommy O’Dell from DMA’s, The Wombats and Kieran Shudall of Circa Waves were among a host of top artists who performed across Everton's social media channels on Friday 22 May, with funds raised from the event going towards Everton and Everton in the Community's campaign to support isolated and vulnerable people across the region during the coronavirus pandemic.

Working alongside music industry specialists Shoot Music, Everton brought together a line-up that also included Keith Mullin from The Farm, Red Rum Club, Zuzu, She Drew The Gun, Howie Payne, SPINN, RATS, and Sunship Balloon.
