More information got to the Rebel Butterfly website
Strummerville,the charity set up in the honour of Joe Strummer, are releasing a 10th anniversary Joe Strummer calendar for 2012. Marking 10 years since Joe Strummer’s passing, the calendar will include 12 months of Strummer’s most inspirational quotes, previously un-seen images and hand-written artifacts from his personal archive; some that have never been seen…
“We are very excited to present this calendar as our first offering for Joe’s 10th anniversary next year. It’s interesting how even ten years after Joe’s passing some of his words of wisdom are more pertinent now than ever before and we hope that this is reflected in the calendar and that it will be celebrated by Strummer fans around the world” – Strummerville
Strummerville will also be releasing two Joe Strummer Christmas cards this year. One is Joe’s last hand-drawn Christmas card (Strummer would send hand-drawn Christmas cards to his close friends every year) and one is an as yet unseen photo of Strummer, taken by Bob Gruen in New York, when Joe was giving money to a homeless person.
Strummerville is a registered charity, set up in the year after Joe Strummer’s death, by friends and family of Strummer. The charity’s aim is to help people through music, from opening a music room in an orphanage in Malawi (info here: http://www.strummerville.com/strummerville-music-room-at-tilinanu-orphanage-in-milawi/) to giving opportunities for people to record and perform music, that would not usually have the access or means.
Strummerville has continued to keep the Joe Strummer flag flying, with the charity ever giving to music projects and iniatives and support to new music
