Centered around the theme of multiple artists banding together to create great music in support of a worthy cause, we’re offering these three Cds, packaged in a Holiday gift bag for only $28.- plus shipping:
CD1: Various Artists - Hands Across The Water
"Each cut on this tsunami benefit comp is a different pairing — 16 different acoustic music dream teams. Altan and Vince Gill. Rodney Crowell and Paul Brady (with Jimmie Rodgers yodel). Jim Lauderdale and Maura O'Connell. Solas with Mindy Smith. Welsh rocker Cerys Matthews sings a traditional number in both Welsh and English, and with bluegrass fiddler Stuart Duncan in Eastern European mode and John Jorgenson's gypsy guitar, it's a delightful surprise. Such imaginative combinations." - Philadelphia City Paper
CD 2: Various Artists - Wells for Zoe
Putting their motto, "A hand up, not a hand-out" into practice, Wells for Zoé founders John and Mary Coyne (parents of tenor banjo player Éamonn Coyne) have assembled a top-notch collection of Celtic and Folk musicians for the purpose of aiding the local population of Northern Malawi in accessing fresh water and creating a sustainable living environment.
New tracks from Irish pop icon Sinead O'Connor and Scottish Borders-based singer Karine Polwart along with previously unreleased tracks from singer/songwriters Paul Brady and Dougie MacLean grace the album alongside a new version of an Alison Brown Quartet favorite and a genre-crossing version of the Eurythmics "Sisters are Doing it For Themselves" by Irish folk singer Maura O'Connell and Canadian folk band, The Duhks along with Tim O'Brien and John Doyle.
CD 3: Various Artists - Cold Blow These Winter Winds
Cold Blow these Winter Winds (GLCD1229) is a holiday album featuring a star-studded line-up of traditional musicians from Scotland and the North of England. Recorded live at a benefit concert on Christmas at Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland, on December 21, 2003. With a portion of the proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care, the project was organized by Rory Campbell (Old Blind Dogs, Deaf Shepherd) and first broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland on Christmas Day 2003.
