Hefner frontman Darren Hayman is a man of many projects. In January it was writing, recording and releasing a song a day, this summer an EP and art exhibition about dogs and people in space, and now he has teamed up with Fika Recordings to present Christmas in Haworth, a six-track EP available as a 10″ vinyl.
As well as the EP Darren and Fika have put together a musical advent calendar. A free song from Darren and his vast pool of musical friends every day of December in the lead up to Christmas. Contributors include The Wave Pictures, Tigercats and even a song from comedian Josie Long.
Darren kindly donated ‘Lost In The Snow’ from Christmas in Haworth to our compilation For Folk’s Sake It’s Christmas 2011, which is being sold to raise money for the Integrated Cancer Centre. It also features songs from The Leisure Society, Kathryn Williams, Devon Sproule, Caitlin Rose and many more. For Folk’s Sake It’s Christmas 2011 is available to pre-order now from Bandcamp.
