Great Music, Great Cause

by

The Diva Day Foundation has been working since 2008 to raise awareness of domestic violence issues. They have not only raised money for such vital groups as Jane Doe, Inc., The Elizabeth Stone House, Transition House, and On the Rise, but by way of their “house band,” Diva’s Daughters, have been active in the community, making, in their words, “a real impact on the lives of women and girls.” It’s important work.

The foundation’s big annual fundraising event, Diva Day, is coming up this Saturday, June 10, and the theme this year is: One Voice: A Celebration of Women in Bluegrass and Folk Music. Fortunately for us, there will be not one, but many voices on stage come Saturday. Diva’s Daughters will open the festivities, followed by Jan Bell and the Maybelles and the headliners, Red Molly.

If you’ve never seen Red Molly perform, you are in for the proverbial real treat – go visit their website, listen to some of their music and reserve your place at Diva Day. Red Molly has some big events coming up: they’re opening for Willie Nelson at the South Shore Music Circus and Cape Cod Melody Tent later this month, and will be kicking off their Southwest Tour soon after.

The music will (I promise!) be fantastic, but don’t forget the cause – funding for domestic violence shelters has not kept pace with need during these tough financial times – I guess none of them fall into the “too big to fail” category. So it’s up to us to keep them going. Tickets for the show are an amazingly affordable $25: buy them right here., and tell them Harry sent you!

If you can’t show up for Diva Day in person, you can still donate to this more than worthy cause: just click right here and they’ll make it easy for you.

Still need convincing? Watch the video – it’s a great introduction to the women and their music. Please enjoy!
