CVFolk4Ukraine – pics and memories

Here is a photographic record of one amazing day – Sunday 27th March 2022 – when over 60 musicians and singers gathered together at the Albany Theatre, Coventry to stage two concerts and a singaround, to raise funds for CVFolk’s Ukraine appeal.

All the photos taken by John B.Smith are here and can be downloaded as low-res versions. If you would like to receive hi-res versions (e.g. for promotional use), please email culture@cvfolk.com, stating which photos and we’ll email them to you.

All we ask in return is that you credit John B.Smith if you use any of the photos publicly AND chip a small amount of money into the Ukraine fund – even if it’s just a couple of pounds. It all helps – and they’re really good photos!

We also include a selection of photographs taken during the evening concert by Loz Moore and reproduced her with his kind permission. Please contact Loz direct if you wish to enquire about us of the photographs.
