St. Petersburg-based photojournalist David Brown was in Haiti last month documenting the aftermath of the earthquake. Upon his return home he thought about "what I and we can do to help with their tragic situation." So together with his wife Carol, he organized a concert that will partly benefit Partners in Health/Stand with Haiti. David recently wrote of the charity and his event in an email:
PIH has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years and has a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. Their founder, Paul Farmer, is a Brooksville native and as close to a saint as a man can be. Carol and I will gladly match dollar-for-dollar your donations to PIH. Please join us for an evening of wonderful music, fellowship and fundraising.
The concert is this Sunday, February 21st and features Cindy Kallet, Ellen Epstein and Michael Cicone.
Cindy Kallet, Ellen Epstein and Michael Cicone have had the pleasure of performing together in concerts, coffeehouses, and festivals throughout New England since 1981. Their close harmonies have inspired enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics alike. The trio sings both a cappella and accompanied by guitar and hammered dulcimer, drawing material from contemporary and traditional music of the British Isles and North America, with a liberal sprinkling of sea music and occasional forays into other cultures as well. The threesome has just released their third recording together.
