AN ALBUM showcasing musicians from across the county can be downloaded from the internet for free, thanks to Hertfordshire world music festival Rhythms of the World.
The Hitchin-based charity has collated Rhythms of the World – Acoustic Sessions 2013, which is available via internet music service Soundcloud.
The album features 11 acts, including Roxy Searle, Beau Jangles and Indi And The Vegas, who all played at a charity gig at Hitchin’s Club 85 in July.
ROTW chairman Amy Hopkins said: “Rhythms of the World has a great following in Hertfordshire and across the UK, but with the internet we can reach an even wider audience, maybe even around the world.
“It’s a great way of showcasing the quality of the artists we host.”
The tracks on the album are:
* GuidoKM – My One True Love
* Cara Beard – Gravity
* Michael King – The Fort
* Asya Fairchild – Another Night
* Beau Jangles – Hey Hey
* Indi And The Vegas – California Sun
* Roxy Searle – Summer Sun
* Craig Harris – Sometimes I Forget
* Steph Scott – Body
* Papaphone – Forever More
* Kev Maher – Lost

The Rhythms of the World festival, usually held in Hitchin each July, was cancelled this summer due to a lack of venue.
Organisers hope to run a festival in 2014 on a new site.
