The Fruit Tree Foundation was an independent project, started in Scotland and led by Rod Jones and Emma Pollock, with the aim of raising awareness of mental health problems and addressing the preconceptions that are often associated with mental ill health. It grew from the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and their first project was to pull together a collection of great musicians from the folk and indie scene and create an album of collaborations that loosely explored themes of childhood, mental health and well-being as well as the confrontation of common stereotypes.
The Fruit Tree Foundation features songwriting contributions from:
James Graham (Twilight Sad), Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit), Rod Jones (Idlewild), Jill O' Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop), Emma Pollock, Karine Polwart, Jenny Reeve, Alasdair Roberts and James Yorkston.
