Legendary folkrock band Fairport Convention will launch an online auction today (Friday 22 November 2013) to raise funds for charity.
Visitors to Fairport's website at http://www.fairportconvention.com can bid for a T-shirt signed by shock-rocker Alice Cooper and the other acts who appeared at Fairport's Cropredy festival this year. The highest bidder will secure the T-shirt and the proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).
As well as Cooper, the T-shirt has been signed by members of Levellers, 10cc Peatbog Faeries, Fairport Convention and Fairport Convention themselves. The signatures are on the front so the T-shirt can be framed for display.
The online auction closes on 18 December and the T-shirt will be posted to the winning bidder in time for Christmas.
Fairport Convention is a long-time supporter of TCT, the national charity that helps young cancer sufferers and their families.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
