Songs from the Black Meadow - The End...

We are very proud to announce that Songs from the Black Meadow - The Album has SOLD OUT.

This album was created by a group of artists from around the world to raise money for Cancer Research UK and Save the Children. It was released by Mega Dodo in 2016.

The album raised  £1381.49 for the two charities.

The album garnered very positive reviews with Record Collector calling it a "deeply involving and atmospherically congruent undertaking"; DC Rock Live stated that it "was a great pleasure to listen to" and House of Prog called "a legend for a new kind of perception."

Songs from the Black Meadow

This is the end for the physical release of the album however you are able to download it on Bandcamp for £5 (proceeds go to Cancer Research UK) and it will also be available on various streaming services soon.

You can also buy the accompanying book which contains the exclusive Black Meadow tale: "A Minstrel Came out of the Meadow" as well as the lyrics from the various songs on the album. All profits from the sale of the book go to Worldwide Cancer Research.

You can take a look at the adventure of putting it all together back in 2014 on the Songs from the Black Meadow Blog.

I would like to the opportunity to thank John Blaney from Mega Dodo for his tremendous energy, support and vision. I would like to thank all of the contributing artists (do check out their various sites and sounds by clicking on their names...) for their incredible work: The Hare and the Moon, Alison O'Donnell, Wyrdstone, The Rowan Amber Mill, Angeline Morrison, Keith Seatman, Winterberry, The Implicit Order, Elena Martin, The Soulless Party, Eastgreen, Lost Trail, Emily Jones, Joseph Curwen, Kid Moxie, Mervyn Williams, Theale Green School and Septimus Keen.
