‘I remember when I was a kid seeing Garth Hewitt on stage.  He was banging on about Christians having a heart for the poor and saving the world and frankly I didn't get any of it.  Garth has always been ahead of his time and we are all catching up with what God has been saying through Garth for the last 30 years.  I wish I had listened closer, but it sometimes takes a lifetime to recognise a true prophet.  It is people like Garth who make us look at the world differently and realise what it is to be a true Christian.’ - Martin Smith (Delirious?)

Conspiracy of Love

mt_ignore:plectrum no backgroundGarth's 2014 tour starts in earnest

Garth says, "The wonderful conspiracy of love brings hope to our world, and to the communities that get forgotten.  So these will be songs of hope, songs of joy, and of course songs of justice."


Garth is once again singing a wide variety of songs telling stories from around the world, and tales of partners of the Amos Trust.  He includes songs from the Justice Like a River album and his new album Liberty is Near! - hymns from the 1840s Chartist movement, which Garth has set to music.  Garth will also be picking out themes from his new book to be published later this year, including the song No Injustice Will Last Forever.

Liberty is Near!

mt_ignore:LibertyisNearcoverNow available - Garth sings the Chartist Hymnbook!


Garth chats about the new album in this short film here


As Britain's first mass labour movement for political reform, the Chartists were struggling for social justice and human rights in Britain. When a copy of their hymnbook was recently discovered, with lyrics but no music, Garth decided to bring the songs back to life by adding music and recording them - to remind us that Christian songs about justice are not new!  And to highlight the responsibility of Jesus' followers to make our voices heard on behalf of the marginalised in society around us.

Launched at the Greenbelt Festival on Sunday 25th August with Dr Mike Sanders, an expert on the Chartists, speaking, the album is now available
