"Using Music to Help Others"

by Webmaster

It's not new. Think Farm Aid.

Jon Chandler and the Wichitones with Founders: Bands, Singers, Songwriters, Solo Performers, Sidemen, Instrumentalists, Performers, Entertainers, Musicians, Places to Hear Acoustic Music, Locations, Venues, Clubs, Festivals, Business and Services Supporting Acoustic Music, Music Stores, Musical Instruments, Music Teachers Ernie Martinez are performing on September 17th at the Tabor Opera House in a benefit to provide a grave marker for frontier marshal Martin Duggan.

All the members of AcousticByLines and the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society were invited by Swallow Hill Music Association to play on Sunday, September 11th, in a benefit to help victims of Hurricane Katrina in the South, especially New Orleans.

I just received word that the Western Beat, a local singer-songwriter showcase will put all the proceeds of a Friday night event to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

I'm proud that the members of both web sites and this songwriters group are the kind of folks that will respond to a call of this type— they give their music to help a good cause.

I'm proud to be associated with them and glad that I can facilitate this effort.

It reminds me once again that music can heal in many ways. (See December, 2004, "Healing with Music".)

Thanks for visiting Acoustic By Lines.
