We recorded a star-studded concert at Towersey Festival in tribute to the much-loved Roy Bailey. Now we're producing it as a live album.

1602158197_roy_bailey_(1).pngRoy Bailey was a campaigner, a storyteller, a performer, an artist, a man of principle and peace, and a genius of his craft. Instrumental in the founding of Towersey Festival, he was also a long-standing regular festival performer and much-loved patron.

We wanted to come together as a festival - and a wider music scene - to celebrate his life and legacy with a tribute concert in 2019, Roy Bailey: Remembered. The concert was something truly special, and included some of the giants of today's folk scene as well as appearances from Roy's own family and friends.

We recorded this very special event with a separate audio feed. At first we thought we might just be recording it for festival archives, but it turned out to be an exceptional quality recording. With the blessing of everyone involved, we’ve decided to mix and produce a live album of the concert, in tribute to Roy’s extraordinary legacy

The album features Tom Robinson, Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting, The Wilson Family, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan, The Spooky Men’s Chorale, John Kirkpatrick, Boff Whalley (Chumbabwamba), Ray Hearne, Marc Block, The Heap Family, Max Simpson and a host of family and friends from Roy’s life and musical journey.

The album also includes audio introductions and tributes from the concert, and is packaged with full notes including all of Steve Heap’s (Mrs Casey Music) personally written introductions and notes as well as introductions from all the artists involved.

We're delighted to say that in Roy's name, and with the full support of the Bailey family, we're hoping to raise as much as possible to support the festival's own charity, the Friends Of Towersey Festival.

The charity is currently working on an Artist Development scheme through which we are able to offer professional development, training and performance opportunities for emerging and established talent on the folk, roots and Americana music scene. Towersey, as one of the country’s leading events, is uniquely placed to help support artists and act as a platform to continue the promotion of the music we all love.

So not only will you receive part of Roy’s lasting legacy with an album that celebrates his huge body of work and features some of the scene's great artists; but you will be helping to shape the future of the next generation of singers and players that help to keep our scene as vibrant and relevant as it was when Roy began his journey.

So, for anyone who’s appreciated Roy’s exceptional musical legacy, be the first to get a copy of the album, and please share this project with your friends - we’ve got just 4 weeks to hit the funding target and we need your help.
