Irish music legends Don Baker and Finbar Furey are today recording a single which they hope will generate funds for the You're Not Alone Meath charity that aims to support the homeless.

Baker, who these days is involved in running Brogan's in Trim, is teaming up with Furey at Stuart Gray's Jealoustown Recording Studios in Skryne.

The song is being produced by Joe Jewell the guitarist with Dublin band Aslan. 

Baker has pencilled in a gig in Brogan's on Saturday 29th April, 8pm which is also aimed at generating funds for the charity more specifically for a van to transport food and clothing to the homeless in Dublin. Tickets for the gig are on sale in Brogan's. 

"We're hoping to get the single recorded and produced ASAP so that its release will coincide with the  gig on the 29th," he said.

The You're Not Alone charity is run by an army of volunteers who take in donations of food and clothing from the public and transfer them to people living on the streets in Dublin.

The charity regularly feeds over 200 people who live on the streets of the capital.

Brogans has become a venue where some of the biggest names in Irish showbusiness are performing in with Paul Brady due to play at the venue in the near future.
