The forthcoming charity album from Knockanstockan & Sound Training College entitled ‘Growing Home’ has launched a Fund:it campaign.
Recorded to help raise funds for the Peter McVerry Trust and their work with the homeless, ‘Growing Home’ includes cover versions from Mongoose, the Hot Sprockets, Fox Jaw, Leo Drezden, New Secret Weapon & more. See full list of tracks below.
Now, the organizers have set-up a Fund:it campaign to cover the cost of making the album, the campaign includes a host of special rewards for donations such as: an Ultimate Knockanstockan package, tickets to the festival, recording sessions plus more. Click here for more information and to donate.
Speaking about the Fund:it drive, the organizers state:
We’ve finished recording, and are on to the final part of the process – getting the album out to you people. So far everyone has given their time for free – the engineers, the musicians, and the recording studios. There are a few unavoidable costs with producing an album, such as CD printing and distribution, copyright licenses (most of the songs are covers), as well as small day to day costs. We’re asking for your help to raise this money so we can start giving money to the charity as soon as the album is released.
