In his long and distinguished career Chris Finnen has donated his time and talent to raise money for countless charities. Now Chris Finnen needs OUR help. After many years of strenuous live performances and national touring his body is finally feeling the strain. Chris is expected to undergo months of painful spinal treatment and a long recovery before he can again grace the stage with his wild and unique talent. Chris is a professional musician who lives solely by music. With no live performances expected for 2017 this will be a financial crisis that Chris does not need in his time of trouble.Chris Finnen’s generosity of spirit has helped countless people in need and he continues to inspire the next generation of guitarists through workshops and masterclasses. Chris Finnen is one of the most well-loved and respected musicians in the Australian music scene and your donation will ensure we all get to enjoy his
music for many years to come.
