Stroud News and Journal: Covers band help Stonehouse care home with new CD release Covers band help Stonehouse care home with new CD release

COTSWORLD band Tin Shakers have released a covers album to raise money for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation.

Charity Barchester’s helps improve the quality of life for older people and adults with learning disabilities and has several residences across Gloucestershire including Moreton Hill care home at Stonehouse.

Tin Shakers hail from Cirencester and perform solely to raise money for the charity. The six-piece re-recorded classing hits such as Twist and Shout, Boots are made for Walking and Keep on Running in Skyhook Studios, Stroud.

Drummer and foundation maintenance manager Malcolm McDonald said: “We decided to do a charity album based on the calculation that if you were 20 when Twist and Shout came out in 1961, you are now 73.”

Containing images of those who have benefitted from the foundation’s work, the album entitled ‘Barch on the Run’ is out now and available to buy from Moreton Hill as well as other Barchester’s centres at Hunters, Cirencester and White Lodge, Braydon, Wiltshire.
