Fes­tive sin­gles for wor­thy causes

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC NEWS -

It’s not just The Killers who’ll be re­leas­ing their tra­di­tional Christ­mas char­ity sin­gle – this year, a num­ber of Ir­ish artists are plan­ning a fes­tive of­fen­sive on the charts. Dublin mu­si­cian Owen­sie has writ­ten and recorded a new song called The Old Breadline in aid of Lim­er­ick’s St Gabriel’s School and Cen­tre.

Coro­nas front­man Danny O’Reilly and Sinéad O’Connor have teamed up with the RTÉ Con­cert Orches­tra to cover When a Child is Born for AWARE, while folk duo The Lost Brothers are do­nat­ing the pro­ceeds of their sin­gle St Christo­pher to home­less char­ity The Peter McVerry Trust. All re­leases are avail­able dig­i­tally now.

Sinéad will sing for AWARE
