about

LIVE recording of two benefit shows performed at Joe's Pub in New York CIty to support the WV American Red Cross flood recovery programs. With very special performances by LAURA CANTRELL, LOOSE CATTLE, NELLIE MCKAYE, ANDERS PARKER, SUZZY ROCHE & LUCY WAINWRIGHT ROCHE, TODD BURGE, CARPENTER ANTS, TYLER CHILDERS, LARRY GROCE, SCOTT MCCLANAHAN and ONA.

On June 23rd, 2016, the almost-heavens over West Virginia opened up. A thousand year deluge washed away homes and churches, schools and livelihoods totaling 340 million dollars. Worst of all, it washed away 23 lives.

Two months later, on August 21st, Michael Cerveris gathered this free-wheeling bunch of big hearted musicians from both WV and NYC in Joe’s Pub to donate their time and their music for two movingly joyful benefit shows. They raised an impressive amount of money for the WV Red Cross, but it was never just about the money. It was also a chance to introduce the music and beauty of today’s West Virginia to an eager New York audience and to let the people back in Cerveris' home state know they weren't forgotten by some of the finest musicians and people in New York. And it worked pretty darn well.
