We are delighted to announce the launch of “Friends for HOPE”, a downloadable album featuring some of the biggest names in Irish music.
In November Ruth Smith and Fergal Scahill will travel to Kolkata to volunteer with HOPE for a month. As part of their fundraising for our projects they have made an amazing live album with their wonderful group of friends and fellow musicians!
The album features music by Luka Bloom, SÍOMHA, Eleanor Shanley & John Feeley, The Whileaways, Seán Keane & Pat Coyne, Eileen Ivers, Charlie McGettigan, Matthew Noone & Tommy Hayes / AnTara, Oisin Leech of The Lost Brothers and The Evertides.
The album is available to download for just €10 with all proceeds going to HOPE. We’d like to thank Ruth and Fergal, and indeed all their incredibly talented friends, for giving their time and talent so generously to make this project a reality.
You can see the track-list below and listen a to short sample from each one.
