Nashvilled-based Compass Records is running a special sale which ends tomorrow (5/18), with $5 from each CD sold going to the IBMA Bluegrass Trust Fund. The Compass headquarters were not damaged in the recent Nashville flooding, but seeing the devastation that has resulted from the Cumberland River moving into town has moved the Compass folks to reach out and lend a hand.
Any bluegrass, folk or Americana CD in their catalog (176 titles) is being offered for $11.99, with free shipping if you order 3. These include albums from Compass founder Alison Brown, Dale Ann Bradley, Drew Emmitt, Darol Anger, Matt Flinner, Russ Barenberg, The Chapmans, The Gibson Brothers and many others.
We don’t typically promote sales and special offers, but this very generous donation from Compass is worth everyone’s attention. You can pick up some great recordings at a discounted price, while also helping to ensure that bluegrass artists and business professionals who have suffered a loss in the flooding can get some financial assistance.
