ANYONE who’s ever attended one of Dashville’s various festivals knows the Lower Belford crew have forged a close affinity with rural Australia.

There’s not many places you can readily see inner-city hipsters enjoying music next to dusty farmers.

Therefore it’s fitting the Dashville mob are getting together to help the drought relief.

Make It Rain is a 40-track two-CD compilation album featuring songs from artists performing at this year’s Dashville Skyline, such as The Waifs, C.W. Stoneking, William Crighton, Melody Pool, Hat Fitz & Cara, The San Sebastian and The Bushwackers.

All funds raised will be donated to the Country Women’s Association, who are providing grants of up to $3000 to drought-affected families to help meet household expenses.

The album can be pre-ordered through the Dashville website or purchased at Skyline on September 28 to 30.
