Miramichi folk duo Connie & Paul are releasing their 4th recording Sunday January 20, 2008, 2PM at the Miramichi Regional Hospital Viewpoint Cafeteria on the 5th floor. The recording entitled “Let Me Walk You to the Corner” will be used as a fundraiser for the Miramichi Hospital Foundation PCU/EMP Palliative Education Fund and will sell for $20.00 each. The duo has pledged $5.00 to the fund from the sale of each of the 1000 CDs printed for a total of $5,000.00. To honour their pledge Connie & Paul have decided to donate the entire proceeds from the first 250 CDs sold to the fund. The fund will be available to staff of the Palliative Care Unit and the Extramural Program at Region 7 Hospital for palliative education purposes.
The recording features a varied selection of thought provoking songs. Selections include old gospel favourites as well as contemporary songs all arranged by Connie & Paul. The title song “Let Me Walk You to the Corner” is a powerful and inspiring original composition that was written specifically for palliative care.
The CD release will feature a performance by Connie & Paul and light refreshments will be served. Copies of the CD will be available for purchase at a cost of $20 each.
