Earlier this year Dyonisis gathered a collection of Sheffield's finest
acoustic artists and put on an intimate and atmospheric gig called Etheria.
It attracted fans of dark acoustic music from around the country and
we indulged ourselves on dark chocolate cherries, amazing music and
quality beers. The Red House venue recorded the sets and, such was the
talent onstage that night, that we considered putting some live recordings
from the night up for free dwonload so that we could share a taste of
the event with others.
sadly, things changed and my uncle became diagnosed with Pancreatic
Cancer. At the time of writing he is still alive, although not expected
to make it through the weekend. I was previously unaware of how low
the survival rate for this cancer is (the lowest of all cancers in the
UK - just 3% of those diagnosed survive 5 years). Naturally, feeling
so helpless in the face of his diagnosis I've wanted to do something
to help raise awareness and fund research.
the light of this, the acts involved kindly agreed to let me put their
music up for paid download - at £4
for 12 tracks of quality music from Sieben, Dyonisis,
Fallen Trees, Actual Midgets, Diz Carberry and Hungarian Lanterns. 100%
of the proceeds will go to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund
(Registered charity No. 1103253).
consider buying this ep. It's a cause in much need of funding and attention.
Furthermore Etheria was a stunning night of great music - you will more
than get your £4 worth - believe me!
