Sleeve Notes for Generosity by Various Artists - Folk for MS

GenerosityCelebration of 20 years of Folk for MS, which began as a single charity concert. The album is called  ‘Generosity’ because all tracks have been donated by some of the many who have given their time and music free.

Description


This album celebrates 20 years of Folk for MS.  The organisation was born from a one off fund raising concert which was so successful that it was decided to do another the next year and……. Over the 20 years more than £35,000 has been raised to help and support those with multiple sclerosis and the project has had the support of some of the best known names in the folk world, all of whom have given their services free. Just a few of them are on this album. We have tried to cover many aspects of the folk genre and to make the album varied and interesting to many tastes. All profits from this album will be going to Folk for MS.
