Stornoway : Stornoway Release New Track for Charity
15th June 2011

Stornoway have donated unreleased track 'You Don’t Know Anything' to the Patagonia Music Collective, available via Patagonia’s website as of June 15th. All proceeds will go directly to The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust

The collective started with the aid of Patagonia Inc., the environmentally minded apparel company which brings together musicians, fans and grassroots environmental groups to raise funds for environmental causes. Artists, such as Stornoway have donated unreleased tracks that will be sold for $.99 with net proceeds going directly to the artist’s favorite environmental group. Visit the website here for details.

Stornoway's Brian Briggs has said about the project "we are excited to be a part of The Patagonia MusicTM Collective and to be helping raise money for our favorite non-profit environmental group, The Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust”. The Trust is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts working across Britain to achieve the shared aim of securing a better future for its wildlife.
