Liberty is Near!
Now 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
