Early April will see the release of Ten, a compilation album by the charity Manchester Aid to Kosovo. The release commemorates ten years of Manchester artists giving their support to some of the worst affected parts of Kosovo through visits, events and special fundraising concerts. You can find out more about the charity here.

The compilation will feature established acts such as Elbow, Doves, Stephen Fretwell, Jim Noir, Cherry Ghost as well as the newer Liz Green, Travelling Band, Josephine Oniyama and Magic Arm. To celebrate the release of this album, there will be two one-off launch shows (one North, one South). Charity patrons Badly Drawn Boy will be performing alongside curators The Travelling Band, as well as a number of other great Manchester artists. Details of all this can be seen below:
