I got this message from Acorn4:
    Joe,
    Like a lot of folk on Mudcat, I've been involved in a couple of CDs to raise money for charities. Is there an area anywhere, where these could be advertised?

    If you put them on a thread, they tend to submerge. I'm sure a lot of catters are involved in things like this, and with Christmas looming, it would be rather good to have some sort of forum for these.
    Acorn4

Sounds like an idea for a PermaThread.
      This is an edited PermaThread® for Charity CD's, intended to provide information about recordings for sale for the purpose of raising funds for charity. This thread will be edited by Acorn4. If know of fundraising recordings, please post information about them and we'll do our best to keep things up-to-date here. If the information you submitted needs correction, please contac Acorn4 by personal message. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.

Clive Lever, who many of us who go to Sidmouth know well, has asked me to put some updated info on the "Guide Cats for the Blind" project, which, as you probably know, has currently released 3 CDs featuring the poems of Les Barker read by Les himself and a number of other famous names like Terry Wogan and Michael Lindsey, as well as performers from the folk world like June Tabor and Bernard Wrigley.

I'll be posting some updates on this over the next few days but just a reminder that the Guide Cats link is on the folowing webpage:-

British Computer Association for the Blind.

The triple set of CDs would make a great gift and possibly introduce people to Les's poems that aren't familiar with them. Believe it or not there are some!

Bill Adair & Bridgend Sessions Band   -   'Along the Miners' Rows'

'Along the Miners' Rows' by Bill Adair & Bridgend Sessions Band

Next year, 2009, marks the 50th anniversary of the worst mining accident in Scotland in the 20th century, when on 18 September 1959, smoke and fumes from an underground fire at Auchengeich Colliery in the small Lanarkshire mining community of Bridgend caused 47 miners to lose their lives. It was estimated that of the 100 or so miners' homes in Bridgend, 80% lost a relative in the disaster.

A special CD of original songs and music has been specially commissioned in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Auchengeich Colliery mining disaster on 18 September 1959.

Written by Bill Adair from Cumbernauld and recorded by the Bridgend Sessions Band, the CD is titled 'Along the Miners' Rows'.

All money raised from the sale of the CD will go into the newly formed Auchengeich Colliery Schools Trust which will finance an annual prize for the two primary schools in the area, Glenmanor Primary School and St. Michael's Primary School, Moodiesburn, near Glasgow.

The CD Album costs £8 plus £2 postage. Cheques made payable to 'Auchengeich Colliery Schools Trust' should be sent to: Bill Adair, Auchengeich Colliery Schools Trust, 31 Southfield Road, Cumbernauld, Glasgow G68 9DQ. Email enquiries address: mail@billadair.net

"My Kind of Music" is a 2 DVD set, which has been produced by John MacRae and features musicians who attend the Barrowden, Gretton, Great Easton and Oakham clubs on the borders of Leicestershire, Rutland and Lincolnshire. It also features performances at the Belvoir Castle Folk Weekend, filmed in the beautiful setting of the castle.

These clubs pull in musicians from a wide area and the DVDs are excellently produced -I can personally really recommend it because the way John has edited it means that it keeps the attention riveted throughout.

John will send you a copy of the DVDs in retutn for a £10 donation to BLESMA -this organisation, which John is involved with, raises funds for limbless ex-servicemen and details of its work can be found at:-

B.L.E.S.M.A

Contact John and he will send you a copy of the DVDs:-

See this link. http://www.faldingworthlive.co.uk/yellowbellies_2_cd.htm

I have about 20 CD's left. This is a one off special edition.

Guidecats Update from Cilve:-

Updates/Future Plans.

Preparations for Volumes 4 and 5 of "Guidecats" are under way simultaneously, and it is hoped that Volume 5 will appear sometime in 2011.
Susan Jameson (Take Three Girls, New Tricks,etc), is recording "The Duvet Cover" , and then hopes to record "Procrastination". She is trying to persuade her husband, James Bolam (Likely Lads, New Tricks, Beiderbecke Affair..) to record "The Atheist and the Bear". Sue is actually becoming quite a fan of Les's work.
Eighties pop singer, Nick Kershaw, has just completed a track called "What Is". Kershaw is at his best making tuneful songs with enigmatic lyrics, and this one is both classic Barker and classic Kershaw. It also soundes very Radio 2 friendly, so fingers crossed!
Tom Bliss is in the studio putting the finishing touches to his track "Van Gogh", and will shortly be recording a second track spoken by Captain Corelli's Mandolin author Louis de Berniere, who is performing in his own right.
Roy Bailey and Wheeler Street have bridged the generations of folk music to record "Ben Kenobi", possibly the first ever space shanty.
BBC Shropshire's former presenter, Nonny James has finished her rendition of "Send in the Cones", which will be released on volume 4, and has covered "Have You Got Any News of the Iceberg?", which will come out on volume 5 in a couple of years time.
The final mixes of the following tracks are now being produced:-
George Hamilton lV; "A Bunch of Mimes"
Dave Cash: "The Verb To Be"
Sniff Patrol:(actors Gerard McDermott, Gary Lilburn and Karl Prekopp from the theatre production of 'Calendar Girls') - a 'doo wop ' version of "Dachsunds with Erections Can't Climb Stairs"
Elaine.C.Smith (Rab.C.Nesbitt) "Runner Up the Wonderhorse"
Gaynor Faye ('Calendar Girls stage production, first ever winner of 'Dancing on Ice') :"I've Been Hiding my Light Under a Bushel"
Sian Phillips CBE: "Seeing is Retrieving"
Julia Hills ('Calendar Girls' stage production, 'The Archers')
Lynda Bellingham (All Creatures Great and Small, Second Thoughts) : "Why Don't They Write it on the Side?"
Tracks are also expected in soon from Mikey Hughes('Big Brother' runner up last year), Radio 4's James Naughtie, Alan Titchmarsh and 'Guide Cats', 'Dibley' and 'Fools and Horses' favourite, Roger Lloyd Pack.

I've already posted this on the Guidecats Myspace thread but thought is would fit in here as well, as it's to do with the sale of the CDs.;-

Alan Titchmarsh gave a superb plug to the Guide Cats for the Blind albums
and the British Computer Association of the Blind on tonight's Melodies for
you. He talked about Peter Bosher visiting him at the TV studios, and
recording a poem by Les Barker called Mid Life Crocus for the next album,
then played "Garden Waste" by Jenny Agutter from volume 3, Top Cat White Tie
and Tails.

You can catch the track and surrounding link at about 1 hour 15 minutes into
the programme, by following the "listen again" link on the Radio 2 page for
Alan Titchmarsh, the address of which is:

n Burton upon Trent - a town synonymous with beer - stands the diminutive Cooper's Tavern separated by the width of the street from England's biggest brewery - Coors. In true David and Goliath style this tiny pub takes on the giant opposite and serves a wealth of good ale from some of the smallest breweries in the country. Wouldn't we all like to get the kind of reviews you can find here Cooper's Tavern

Anyway on 27 February charming landlady Mary is running a charity event for the St Giles Hospice in Lichfield. Music will be provided by Norcsalordie who regularly turn out for the Cooper's beer festivals.

I recommend it to one and all - it's got everything -
Superb pub, excellent ales, wonderful landlady, terrific bunch of regulars, great entertainment, good cause

Message from Clive - can anyone help with this:-

The Guide Cats for the Blind promotion team are looking for good quality recordings of a series broadcast on radio 2 in the run-up to Christmas in, we think, 1992. It was a six-part series called "Mrs Ackroyd Explores Her Roots", featuring the work of Les Barker and his partners in musical crime, The Mrs Ackroyd Band. We are on a mission to try to get it re-broadcast on Radio 7, but first need to satisfy ourselves that broadcastable recordings still exist. Any information? please email

A friend of ours, John Montague, who is well known to musicians around the Leicester area had a serious heart problem at the beginning of the year and has become involved with the BHF as a result. He sent me this email a couple of days ago, so I thought I'd put it up here:-

Hi Everyone


You may have seen my picture and read the article in the Leicester Mercury Tuesday 27th September and you may even hear me Tuesday 6th on Radio Leicester chatting and playing live about our "Have A Heart" Concerts In Aid of The Glenfield Hospital and British Heart Foundation.



But I really believe in helping raise a few quid as just a small thank you for what these people and organisations do.

I NEED YOUR HELP

I offer this thank you not only personally but to share it with others who have or known someone (perhaps a relative or friend) who have also received treatments from this invaluable service.

The British Heart Foundation are working tirelessly alongside our Dr's & Surgeons at The Leicester Glenfield Hospital who help so many more than just Leicestershire folk.



I also realise that times are difficult at present financially but the work of The Leicester Glenfield Coronary Unit and The British Heart Foundation has and does still carry on.

As I unexpectedly and personally experienced, you just never know when you will need them!!



So please support us if you can and help me spread the word for these two Concerts. I promise they will be great nights of music and entertainment. Featuring The High Sierras, The fabulous Vikki Clayton, Dave Kirk and students of the Hind Leys College.

All The Musicians, College Staff and Students are giving there time for free.

So we want a full audience !!

If you cannot make it your self, no problem we will appreciate any donations or even a Raffle Prize no matter how small. Treat a friend to a Ticket as an early Christmas Present, what a gift!!



Thanks for reading this and here are the details to get tickets at the Box Office:



"Have A Heart"

Southernmost of Dales Folk Concert
Venue: William Brookes School, Much Wenlock

Charity folk concert in aid of Jon Hayward Memorial Trust (helping local children afford to access music)

Featuring:
Hoover The Dog,
Harriet Bartlett,
Flaxenby,
Hector Gilchrist & Liz Thomson,
Bill Caddick (MC)

Date: 7th Nov 2009
Start: 7.30pm (doors 7pm)
Price: £15 (£12)
Contacts: 01746 785615 / sushayward@hotmail.com (Sue Hayward)

The Jon Hayward Memorial Trust was been set up in memory of a well known Shropshire folk musician who sadly died in November 2006. Jon was passionate about music and always enjoyed sharing this with others. He particularly loved to see children developing their musical ability. He was a true Shropshire man who was born in the county and spent most of his life here. Consequently family and friends felt the Trust to be a fitting memorial to him.

The Trust aims to give some financially disadvantaged children in Shropshire the opportunity to pursue an interest in music. This could be by helping parents with a up to 50% of the cost of musical instrument or singing lessons, by meeting part of the cost of instrument hire, or contributions towards the cost of other musical activities. We are now in our second year of funding students throughout the county.

Nov 4      Dave Cartwright

http://www.davecartwright.net/

John Montague introduces and presents Dave Cartwright

Dave Cartwright is an entertainer of unique standing. Having recorded 5 albums of his own songs for the prestigious DJM and Transatlantic labels in the mid seventies, he went on to tour the world extensively, appearing at major festivals and on television in Europe, Australia and America.

As a talent on his own stage, his warm voice, resonant Guild acoustic 12-string and tunefully inventive harmonica style act as a wonderful backdrop to his songs and humour. His performances are not based on ego, he is merely out to entertain and enjoy, to give value for money. He doesn't tell jokes, but he will make you laugh; you might not know all his songs, but he'll soon get you singing; and if you feel down, he will lift you up. He is here to shake you by the hand, not the scruff of the neck.

A message from Clive Lever re "Guidecats" :-

I spoke to Pat Tynan this morning, and he tells me that we've managed to get tracks from Cat Nav played on Radio 2, BBC Scotland, Radio Wales, Radio Ulster, RTE Radio 1 and a good number of local stations, but radio 4 still remains a closed shop. Apparently one of the problems is that we now have a culture in which we can say the Eff word on air, but we can't promote a charity directly, unless it's Terry Woebegone's Children In Need, or whatever.

So, would you be prepared to send in an email request to see if we can get a track, possibly the ArchBishop of Canterbury's Lost Elephants of Denbigh played on radio 4's Poetry Please? At the moment, this is one of the holy grails, so to speak.

I don't want to do this through FaceBook, because we need requests to look like spontaneous listener requests. Anything that smells of a concerted effort or campaign will torpedo our chances altogether, because Auntie Beeb will quite rightly run a country mile to avoid appearing to respond to special interest groups.

If you do send in a request, don't copy me in, but if you want to send me the message you posted from your sent items folder after it's gone, fair enough. Please let me know the outcome.

Best,
Clive

There has been a review of Catnav on:-

http://www.netrhythms.co.uk/reviews.html#lesbarker

Some extracts below:-

At long last, a further helping of the wit and wisdom of the brilliant Les Barker, again to raise funds for the BCAB (British Computer Association Of The Blind). This time it's a two-disc set, stretching to a generous two hours' playing-time, on which assorted musicians and celebrities deliver renditions of Les's songs and poems.

Les himself appears on two of these – on a solo live performance of Sex Is Better Than Poetry and on Hip Hop Hamlet (fronting the Mrs Ackroyd Band); I think (but couldn't totally swear to it) that these recordings are taken from existing available CDs. The remainder, however, appear to be new recordings made specially for this venture, although some of the actual musical parodies herein have been recorded before for earlier Mrs Ackroyd releases (in the case of My Husband's Got No Porridge In Him, by the same artist - Norma Waterson, but in virtually all other cases by different artists). Never fear, for it's good to hear alternative renditions, the originals can take it (and so can you!).

Roy Bailey and Wheeler Street raise the roof (and the stars) with their Ben Kenobi space-shanty, the Haley Sisters deliver an authentic Roseville Fair; Dan & Gene ship on board the enigmatic Sloop John A, Nonny James exhorts us to Send In The Cones and Fairport Convention are roped in to portray Quasi B. Goode.

The spoken-word pieces are aptly characterised in the main, comparing very favourably with earlier instalments in the series: particularly well-suited to their tasks I feel are Richard Briers (Why Don't They Write It On The Side?), Jeremy Taylor (Shi Tsu), Bernard Cribbins (Odd Socks), Bernard Wrigley (Beef Dripping), and Charles Collingwood (Je Ne Sais Quoi), while Bob Harris whispers meaningfully through The Nine Banded Armadillo and we even hear from the Archbishop Of Canterbury (in both English and Welsh!) regarding The Lost Elephants Of Denbigh.

"All at Seagrave" - Charity Event.

This is a weekend event which takes place in the "Post Royal Wedding" slot over the Bank Holiday Weekend, Sat April 31st - Mon May 2nd. In aid of the "Rainbows" charity, in the village of Seagrave which is just off the A46 Fosse Way north of Leicester.

Saturday will be "Big Sing" sessions in the White Horse, 12.00 - 2.00 and 6.00 - 11.00 -all free to come along and join in.

Sunday will be a "Big Busk" - in the pub garden if it's fine, inside if not - everyone free to bring instruments and voices along and do a few songs or tunes. 12.00 - 6.00

Monday will be some "folky" bands, that regular attendees at the Folk Night are part of - once again in the garden if weather fine, but outside if not. 12.00 - 5.00.

This should be coinciding with events organised by the Caravan and Camping Club at the Village Hall - the details of this have yet to be confirmed but it looks like there will be a Saturday Night ceilidh and some tune sessions. So there should be something for all tastes.

The whole thing is free but you are asked to donate to the charity. Unfortunately there is no camping unless you are a member of the Caravan and Camping Club.
