However, here's some nice news. One of the tracks I've been working on recently is included in a great compilation in aid of the Edinburgh Free Fringe. Masterminded by MJ Hibbett, over thirty bands and performers from the worlds of indie and comedy have come together to create a unique download album in aid of the PBH Free Fringe.
The Free Fringe was founded by Peter Buckley Hill in 1996 and now puts on hundreds of shows for free every year at the Edinburgh Fringe. Performers don't pay to play and the public doesn't pay to get in. The organisers do, however, ask performers to help find funding for the listings brochure.
"It's a fantastic organisation which has helped us a lot", says MJ Hibbett, organiser of the compilation, "I decided to put together an online compilation album to raise funds, and hoped to get enough songs for an album. The response was so huge I ended up with enough for three!"
The compilation features 36 new, unreleased or rare tracks from a wide range of performers including John Otway, Chris T-T, Helen Arney, Standard Fare, The Bobby McGees, The Just Joans and many many more. It's released today and costs just five pounds for over an hour and a half's worth of music.
The album will be deleted in six weeks time, on April 15, so lovers of music and bargains will need to hurry - it can be found exclusively on bandcamp, at its dedicated website: http://pbhfreefringebenefitalbum.bandcamp.com/
