Adrian Utley and John Parish raise money for Bristol gig space

For their first ever collaboration, the duo are co-writing The Trinity Anthem to help pay the costs of a long running community music venue in Bristol

Adrian Utley and John Parish are collaborating for the first time ever on a piece of music celebrating the long running Bristol gig and community venue The Trinity Centre. Proceeds from the music will go towards Trinity’s fundraising campaign Notes For Notes, which aims to raise £20,000 to cover the cost of essential conservation repairs for the 187 year old Georgian church.

“During the Notes For Notes campaign,” explains the fundraising page, “Trinity will exchange a musical note for every £5 raised. When we reach 4000 musical notes we will launch The Trinity Anthem – a unique piece of music created by artists, musicians and centre users to celebrate the diverse musical heritage of the centre and Bristol communities.”
