Tribute single to be released for Tramlines’ late director Sarah Nulty
James Voisey (Jaarvo), the brother of late Tramlines director Sarah Nulty, has recorded and released a tribute single and will perform it on Saturday night of the festival at the newly named Nulty’s Main Stage.
‘Laura’ meant a lot to Sarah and her brother James first performed the song at Sarah’s funeral. Since then, he has recorded his own upbeat version in Sheffield with George Moran and Chris Wilkinson of Fox Den Studios in Kelham Island with Ed Cosens of Reverend and The Makers, and the Neighbourhood Choir.
James Voisey said: “The passion Sarah had for Sheffield, Tramlines and life will reverberate through the hearts of those she touched for all of time. It is the biggest honour of my life to share with the sold-out Tramlines crowd just some of the love Sarah put into making the party what it is today.”
In addition to revenue raised from sales of the single, Tramlines 2019 will see the return of ‘Nulty’s Bar’, and on sale will be new ‘BeMoreNulty’ merchandise, designed by Sheffield artist, Tom J Newell. All profits will also go to Cavendish Cancer Care and Weston Park Cancer Charity who provided vital care and support for Sarah and her family during her illness.
Sales from the backstage Nulty’s Bar and from the hugely popular BeMoreNulty merchandise and t-shirts, designed in association with Dropdead Clothing, were worn by hundreds of festival goers and band members alike in 2018, resulting in £30,000 raised for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care. Tramlines aims to raise even more funds via these streams in 2019, including new rainbow-coloured BeMoreNuty designs, to help fund resources and crucial research carried out by the Sheffield-based charities.
As well as on site at Tramlines 2019, the BeMoreNulty merchandise can also be purchased from the Dropdead website here.
