Armistice Pals

THE ARMISTICE PALS SINGLE – NOVEMBER 2014

The Song attracted BBC Radio 2 play on both The Folk Show and Good Morning Sunday

as well as many independent radio stations around the country as well as the BBC network of regional stations.

OUR MISSION

* To record a song which Pete Seeger loved, in honour of his memory, in the year of his passing

* To release an anti war song which involves a cross section of the musicians immersed in the folk world, all singing the same song, in this commemorative year

* To raise money for charities who support peace and peaceful solutions to conflict

* To achieve radio play across the BBC Network and the community radio stations across the country/internet and hopefully be played/ play listed on BBC Radio Two

* To ignite the interest of the general public regarding their local folk scene, to enable more people to enjoy a communal singing experience and encourage them to express themselves through song.

 

We were delighted that the song won FATEA Magazine EP of the Year for 2014 and that the Talkawhile Fairport Forum awarded it Best Traditional Song.

The digital download  features four tracks, including the single, Where Have all the Flowers Gone. There’s also a bonus track called Emerald Green, as well as Peggy’s rendition of the famous World War 1 poem, I have a rendezvous with Death. This poem was written by her uncle, Alan Seeger, who did indeed have the rendezvous during the war, and about whom Peggy shares some insights into her uncle’s life and death.

TA DA ! we are delighted to be able to share the single on a video which shows who’s singing where on the song :)
