Yorkshire Bill Has Another Charitable Impulse
As I`ve mentioned before, Yorkshire-based musician Bill Nelson has found an interesting way to support the Sara`s Hope Foundation, a charity which works to support children who have cancer and their families.
Some time ago, the charity approached Bill, who achieved fame and fortune in the `70s/`80s with the bands BeBop Deluxe and Red Noise and as a solo performer, to ask if they could use some of his music for promotional purposes.
Bill came up with his own counter-proposal, which was that each year he would compose and record a song specifically to be sold online as a fundraiser for the charity.
He has done this for some years now, and the latest track, called Starland, can be purchased by clicking on this link ;
The Nelson/Sara`s Hope tracks from previous years can still be found at the same site, their titles being Six Strings for Sara, A Million Whistling Milkmen, Rocket to the Moon and Holey Moley It`s a Parallel World.
Any queries ;
