FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NASHVILLE, TN (December 5, 2008) – Wells for Zoë, an Ireland-based non-profit focused on assisting the local population of Northern Malawi with accessing fresh water, will be featured on The Late Late Show in Ireland tonight at 9:30pm. Sinéad O’Connor with band Steve Cooney (producer of track), Liam Ó Maonlaí, Conor Murray, Tommy Moran (songwriter), Alez Nkosi, Mutale, Odhrán and Éamonn Coyne will perform “Baby, Let Me Buy You A Drink”, track two off of the album Wells For Zoë: Water for Life. The Late Late Show is Ireland’s most popular and prestigious television show and is the longest running chat show in the world.
Putting their motto, “A hand up, not a hand-out” into practice, Wells for Zoë (W4Z) founders John and Mary Coyne (parents of tenor banjo player Éamonn Coyne) have assembled a top-notch collection of Celtic and Folk musicians for the purpose of aiding the local population of Northern Malawi in accessing fresh water and creating a sustainable living environment. New tracks from Irish pop icon Sinéad O’Connor and Scottish Borders-based singer Karine Polwart along with previously unreleased tracks from singer/songwriters Paul Brady and Dougie MacLean grace the album alongside a new version of an Alison Brown Quartet favorite and a genre-crossing version of the Eurythmics’ “Sisters are Doing it For Themselves” by Irish folk singer Maura O’Connell and Canadian folk band, The Duhks along with Tim O’Brien and John Doyle.
Profits from the sales of Wells for Zoë: Water for Life will go towards funding future W4Z projects.
