This is Jamie typing. I just wanted to post about the second Friends In Bellwoods compilation for The Daily Bread Food Bank that we’re currently working on. Even though we’ve had a few delays and such with the album and the tour, this is a project that is still moving forward, and we’re all pretty excited about.
We put out the first Friends In Bellwoods compilation in January of 2007 that is available through Stuart Duncan’s Out Of This Spark label. It was a two-CD release that featured 36 artists including Sebastien Grainger, Katie Stelmanis, The Rural Alberta Advantage, The Wooden Sky, Forest City Lovers, Evening Hymns, and Ohbijou. All of the money raised from the sale of the compilation went to, and still goes to, The Daily Bread Food Bank. So far, we’ve raised over $11,000 which is something that we’re very happy about.
The same is going to go for the second Friends In Bellwoods compilation, but this time it will be a two-CD release that features 43 artists. It’s going to be a good one! The final list of artists will be confirmed soon, and I assure you, it’s a pretty amazing collection of music!
We’re going to have a few CD release shows at the end of August this year, plans for which are shaping up now. As soon as things are solid, we’ll be posting about those details for sure.
In the meantime, if you want more information, you can check out the website at www.friendsinbellwoods.com.
That’s about it for now! Take care!
