"A Place to Dwell": Now available and receiving glowing reviews. (Updated 14/6/18)

The Southend YMCA folk CD is here!


Copies of ‘A Place to Dwell’ were delivered to us not too long ago, and the CD is already blazing a trail for Southend YMCA with notices in online media and tracks played on national and regional radio stations.


The album is available on download and as a Limited Edition CD, so if you haven’t already grabbed a copy you can get one here.


We have been lucky enough to gain sponsorship from Stockvale LTD  and  The Gleneagles Guesthouse to produce the CD and to assist with the launch event which is a joint venture with Leigh Folk Festival and will take place at Twenty One café on Friday 22nd June 2018, from 7.15pm to 11pm.
