A charity album showcasing some the best new music in Bury St Edmunds has raised enough money to launch a music group for people with mental health issues in the town.
This is the Sound of Sugar Town Volume 2 was launched as a 12” vinyl and download album in July by Repeat Records and Pure Deadly with all profits going to mental health charity Julian Support.
Money from Volume 2 has now raised enough to set up a pilot music appreciation group for people with mental health issues which will be run from The Hunter Club in Bury throughout October, with the hope of attracting further funding.
On the back of Volume 2’s roaring success and to further support the charity, a retrospective album This Was the Sound of Sugar Town is being released, looking back at the DIY music scene in Bury over the last 25 years.
It features new artwork by Bury St Edmunds artist and former Long Blondes singer Kate Jackson.
