News: A Co-Present Christmas for PIETA HOUSE

A CoPresent Christmas for PIETA HOUSE

Info: Irish music radio show The Co-Present on Dublin Digital Radio have compiled a 15 track album of Christmas songs by an eclectic mix of Irish Artists. 

"Christmas is a time of year when friends and family come together and enjoy each others company. Unfortunately, for some, it is a time of remembrance for those we have lost and for others a time of loneliness and sadness. We at Pieta House are trying every day to break the cycle of suicide and self-harm and to comfort those who have lost a loved one. 

This album, from the first note to the last chorus, signifies a great hope. Pieta House strives for an Ireland where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance. Finally to everyone involved with the album we extend our gratitude, that you have given your time and energy to help those who need our services and to know that you are changing lives." Pieta House. 

Featuring contributions from Villagers, Ailbhe Reddy, Jack O'Rourke, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Columbia Mills, Session Motts and many more (see track listing below). A Co-Present Christmas sees covers of classic tracks from The Pretenders, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Joni Mitchell as well as some old Christmas favourites and two original songs. 

All proceeds from the album and live events will be donated to Pieta House Suicide and Self Harm Crisis Centre. Freephone - 1800 247 247.
