About

Welcome one and all to the Mrs H and the Sing-along Band kickstarter page!

We are very excited to announce that we have a new collection of songs that we are looking to become our forth album, “Starlight Dance”. It would be great if you can take the time to watch our film, read about us below and hopefully choose to support the making of these new songs. For those of you who don’t know us we are a much loved, unique, London based band playing music for the whole family to enjoy. Our aim is to provide quality music for children, that adults will love too. Bringing together elements of Folk, Soul, Afro, Latin, Dub, comedy and theatre the band present the ‘sing-along’ with a new lease of life.

Headed up by Mrs H on lead vocals and guitar, the all star band includes members of Red snapper, Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo, Beth Orton’s band and The Leisure Society, on an array of instruments including guitars, banjos, double bass, accordion and trumpet.

As well as hosting our regular, open to all sing-along’s in Exmouth Market, London we tour the country playing venues, community centre’s, schools, festivals and our latest project, “All Together Now”, has seen us bringing children into residential care homes.

Our current project "All Together Now " 

We passionately believe good quality music should be available and open to everyone to participate in and experience. This will be our third Kickstarter campaign. The first two successfully brought about the “Dance Away With Me” album and the second our book and CD/ download, “Mrs H Sings”. 

It is through your support in bringing these projects to life that the bands ability to bring their joyful music to the world is possible.

The cost of making the new album, despite being on a shoestring, will still be £15,000. With this money we are able to pay for all the musicians, studio hire, artwork, duplication, mixing and mastering. 

To help make it happen we are applying to The Performing Rights Society Foundation for their maximum grant award of £5,000. In order to achieve this we need to raise the other £10,000 in pledges. Seed funding is critical to our success. Having the leverage of match funds in place will make the application a much stronger and viable proposition in this competitive climate. 

 What we are asking is that people can purchase the album in advance and in doing so will provide the capital needed to make the album. Should some people feel extra generous there are also other rewards available. Please look to the right for some of these exciting offers! If we don’t reach our goal within the time limit, we won’t receive any of the money, so we really need to hit our target. If you know anyone else that would be interested in supporting us please forward this on. We are very excited about the new material on this album and we think you will be too. 

This new album will not only give you a whole new Mrs H repertoire to share with your family and friends but it will also be an essential tool for the band to keep spreading the word of what they do. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at this page, please support us and help us make “Starlight Dance” 

Very best wishes 

 Mrs H and the Sing-along Band     

Risks and challenges

Possible set backs are recording/production delays, but as the band themselves are working on much of the production, we will be doing our utmost to keep to schedule. If small setbacks should arise, please be patient with us because nothing is going to stop this album from being completed!
