The video to accompany ‘Merry Christmas From Hatfield Main’ by Joe Solo & The Hatfield Brigade was launched late on Friday night and almost 14,000 people had streamed the Facebook version alone as I type this on Sunday afternoon. A truly incredible response from you all, so THANK YOU.
Shot by Michael Lee Toas of MLT Productions, and filmed on location at Stainforth Central Club on Sunday 30th October, this incredible video perfectly captures the community feel of the day as former miners and their families gathered from all over the UK to join a choir like no other and spread a little solidarity this Christmas.
We now need YOUR help folks. We do not have the industrial might of the record business; we do not have a queue of news editors looking for our story; we do not have full page adverts in glossy magazines, or telly programs pushing us every weekend, or heavy rotation on radio playlists; but what we do have is YOU- an army of ordinary people just like us who can now play YOUR part in this little bit of history. We need you to share and retweet like never before, to tell all your friends and relatives and to get ready to click on download when the single goes live.
You can do all that from the comfort of your armchair and it would mean such a lot to us if you could.
‘Merry Christmas From Hatfield Main’ is released on Monday 28th November on all the usual download sites- Amazon, Spotify, iTunes etc. and every penny raised will go to help those struggling to make ends meet in #FoodBankBritain, so by downloading you will be helping an amazing community help others.
Here’s the video on YouTube. Please watch and share and let’s make this happen.
