WHO ARE WE?
By Cambel McLaughlin, founder of Jam for Freedom.
Thank you to all that have participated and supported our international music project. The best is yet to come! Started in Hampstead Heath, London by musician and educator, Cambel McLaughlin on December 20th 2020 as a response to government measures, my aim was to bring the world’s musicians together in a day of solidarity, called the ‘Jam for Freedom’. It was the first of many.
After several months of tireless touring around the UK and Ireland with pro-freedom musicians, the project received international recognition from rock and roll great Eric Clapton. Van Morrison’s Rhythm and Blues Foundation also supported our cause, giving us funds to upgrade our modest busking rig, and what propelled the project to international awareness was Eric Clapton’s featuring us in his music video for ‘This Has Gotta Stop’. I instantly received emails from across the world from people wanting to join in. We went from having two chapters in Ireland and the UK that I set up, to having 12 and growing.
We then featured in a Rolling Stone hit piece, one on MSNBC, and blew up in the United States after appearing twice on Steve Bannon’s War Room show. One year down the line and over 200 jams later, we are forever grateful for all the support we have received across the world, from the families that have put us up in their homes and to the countless musicians that showed up to perform and support freedom. We are now preparing USA, European and Australian tours, and so much more in the UK and Ireland to help with mental health.
Just under a year later and the Jam for Freedom movement is now global with 11 different countries and our ‘International Jam for Freedom Day’ uniting musicians in inter-continental jams all live-streamed at the same time! Our supporters now include Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Right Said Fred and musicians and music-lovers from across the world.
Our story is your story. Let music raise the vibration and create the revolution in the mind, body and soul. We will win this war on our sacred human consciousness…the future is yours. Victory is ours. We will never surrender.
Funds used from your donations will be used to help us to spread truth through music as well as any expenses incurred on the road as we tour non-stop in aid of liberty, mental health, and medical choice.
Thank you for helping us stay independent and to help humanity with the power of live music, community and real-life connection. Sending love and appreciation!
