Tamas Haydu, CCF Chief Executive, comments, “I’m very grateful to Jordan and Tom for pulling together the album so quickly, featuring 27 of the best artists in the south west, to raise funds for the Cornwall Coronavirus Emergency Appeal. Their determination to help is a true reflection of the community spirit of Cornwall. These are very difficult times for all and the epidemic is having a significant impact on self-employed people, including artists and musicians. Despite having all their gigs cancelled for the next few months these musicians have put Cornwall first and are helping to raise funds to support others. I’ve listened to One and All and it’s great – I’m sure it will lift our spirits while we get through this crisis.”
One and All is available across all digital stores including Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music.
