New Music Celebrates Tearfund Anniversary

Monday April 16 2018

A new album and tour by leading Scottish Christian musicians will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Tearfund.

The now-familiar line-up of Yvonne Lyon, Allan McKinlay, Ellyn Oliver and David Lyon have created new music reflecting on jubilee themes of restoration, freedom and love.

They will play at 10 churches throughout Scotland in May and June.

Yvonne Lyon is an established singer-songwriter with eight solo albums to her name, while her husband David has released four CDs of worship songs. Allan McKinlay is a worship leader familiar from events including CLAN Gathering, and Ellyn Oliver is a member of New Scottish Hymns and earlier this year toured South Africa with Origin Scotland. As a foursome, they have been playing together for Tearfund since the 2016 Christmas tour.

Tearfund was created by the Evangelical Alliance in 1968, and was originally named The Evangelical Alliance Relief Fund. It has worked in disaster relief and supporting people in poverty in over 50 countries.

To mark the anniversary, Tearfund has launched a campaign called ‘We Won’t Stop Until Poverty Stops’, targeting what it says are three key areas in which the charity can play a leading role: partnering with local churches to transform communities, working with communities affected by disaster in the long term and pursuing environmentally and economically sustainable development.

Each of the performances will help raise money for Tearfund’s partner organisations around the world. Tickets are £6 and can be booked at Eventbrite.
