In honor of his contributions to the organization, Nordoff Robbins, a London-based music therapy charity, will be presenting Jimmy Page with their Silver Clef Award on July 4th.
Page’s support of the charity goes back to 1990, when he made a surprise appearance with Robert Plant at a benefit concert that helped raise funds for the Nordoff Robbins London Centre. Past recipients of the “Silver Clef” Award include Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney and David Bowie.
“There is no doubt that his support for the charity back in 1990 helped to raise the profile of the outstanding work that Nordoff Robbins do and it is a pleasure to be recognizing such a huge talent and bonafide music legend,” O2’s Nuala Donnelly, who sponsors the Silver Clef Awards.
This award ceremony, which also helps raise funds for the charity, is a big deal among the music industry, so considering Page usually keeps to himself, it’s noble of him to make an appearance, if only to help the charity’s fund-raising efforts.
