This is just a last minute reminder that the Hurricane Sandy Benefit in New York City is Tonight !
This is a rare chance to see artists of this caliber, especially for such a low cost. Tickets to see Sarah are often double this amount, and she does not come to the US often. This is going to be an unusual concert in that it will also include a discussion on songwriting and include some stories. This is a rare chance to see another side of these artists.
As most Americans know, Hurricane Sandy occurred four months ago and left many residents of New York and New Jersey without homes. The damage was significant. Although New York City has promised aid and has collected a great deal, they seem to be busying themselves with things like trying to restrict the size of the soda its citizens and visitors can drink, rather than cutting through the red tape which would allow those made homeless from Superstorm Sandy, to move out of the basements of friends and relatives.
These Canadian artists will donate the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity. Thank you all for your efforts.
Please let me know if you have a chance to go. Thank you.
