Turn up for Recovery is a charitable movement raising awareness of abstinence-based recovery, tackling the stigma of addiction and helping make treatment affordable to people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. Founded by Melia Clapton, she announced the movement during Eric Clapton’s 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival.


Best known as the guitarist and frontman of The Standard Lamps, Mike is now producing and performing his solo material at venues around the UK. With major support slots, supporting both The Who on their 2014 and 2017 UK tours, and The Bluetones on their 2015 and 2016 comeback tours, The Lamps built up a strong following around the UK; with audiences relishing their authentic take on classic 60s/70s British rock music, energetic performances and easy going demeanour on stage. Mike's first solo album, ‘Imaginary Friend’, which was released in May 2018. He is currently getting ready to record his second solo album, which he hopes to release next year.

Ralph McTell - Singer, songwriter and acoustic guitar player Ralph McTell has been an influential figure on the UK music scene since the late 60s. He made his debut in 1968 with the album ‘Eight Frames a Second’ and in 1974 the release of ‘Streets of London’ earned him an Ivor Novello Award. The song 'Streets of London' has been covered by over two hundred artists around the world. He modelled his guitar playing on the style of US country blues guitar players of the early 20th century, including Blind Blake, Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell. It was these influences led a friend to suggest that he change his professional name to McTell as his career was beginning to take shape. In 2002 he was presented with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Learn more about Ralph at
