Hi, I'm Annie, the founder of Memories in Music. Music became a passion of mine early in life, and has been an influence throughout it. It has always made me dream of better things, and inspired me to love life. It means the world to me.
Growing up I was very influenced by British musicians, especially Jimmy Page, and through him, I discovered all sorts of other wonderful artists who have given me much joy. My music library contains almost every type of music, from classical to punk, Gregorian chants to Fairport Convention - I enjoy pretty much everything! I have always wanted to spread the joy that music gives me and find a way to organise music fans to help those in need. Raising money for charity with music as a basis is the principle behind Memories in Music.
In 2008 I organised a charity exhibit of Led Zeppelin memorabilia at Knebworth House, the place where Zeppelin performed their last UK concert with the four original members. After the success of that event, I received many emails and phone calls from people who wanted me to do it again, and many offers of help. I started thinking that if so many people had enjoyed this exhibit, fans of other musicians would enjoy helping raise charity money too. I decided to create a non profit company and keep going. The title of my Knebworth Exhibit was 'Memories in Music', which became the name of the company.
Since then Memories in Music has raised thousands of pounds for charity, and I'm always looking forward to the next event. We have music fans helping out in many different ways. They volunteer their time and their talents to keep the website going, contribute to the gift shop and help organise our events and activities. If you find music an inspiration, you are invited to join us!
