Singer James Taylor plans 2nd benefit concert in Great Barrington to aid Haiti earthquake relief

By The Associated Press

January 20, 2010, 12:53PM

GREAT BARRINGTON – Singer James Taylor has scheduled a second benefit concert in Massachusetts to aid earthquake relief efforts in Haiti after the first show sold out.

Taylor announced on his Web site that he’ll play a second show on Saturday at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington.

The first show, scheduled for Friday, sold out in 90 minutes Tuesday and raised $300,000 – $150,000 in ticket sales, which was then matched by Taylor and his wife, Kim.

Both shows will benefit Partners in Health, a Boston-based group that brings modern medical care to poor nations and has been working in Haiti for more than 20 years.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, who lives in nearby Lenox, says on his Web site that a second concert “is the least I can do.”

Rainsford Island History 275 years ago Edward Rainsford farmed on a island in the middle of Boston Harbor - come with the Friends of the Boston Harbor Island on October 11th and explore! Rainsford Island is a 50-foot drumlin, natural coves facing south and southwest, separated by rock outcropping Pebbles and rock beach, shell deposits. In about 1636, Edward Rainsford was granted the island for farm use. In 1737, a quarantine hospital was moved to Rainsford Island from Spectacle Island and operated there until 1852. During this time, Rainsford Island was a popular summer resort. In 1832 a small-pox hospital was built (a stone Greek-temple design), and many victims of infectious diseases were buried on the island in. In about 1852, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts took possession of the island and established an almshouse. The state abandoned the site in about 1866, and the City converted the island into a poorhouse. Civil War Veterans lived there until 1882, when they were transferred to a Soldiers Home on the mainland. Beginning in 1882, female paupers were sent to Rainsford. Later it was a facility for boys: the Suffolk School for Boys. In 1920, the school was closed. Now only foundation holes remain visible. (from the City of Boston) Further details: Departs Rowes Wharf Water Transport, 60 Rowes Wharf Boston, MA 02110 behind the Boston Harbor Hotel. Please check in for your boarding pass/hand stamp with the Friends BHI volunteer on the day of the trip. No refunds, trip canceled only by the captain, will run rain or shine.

DK & the Joy Machine- systeme d
COMING UP THIS OCTOBER... get yrself a full set of DK & her band as they play Diva's Nightclub with friends SystemeD!! MORE ABOUT DK: Known for her genre-blending, innovative work on mountain dulcimer--plucking, strumming, and bowing-- and for “rocking out” on this trad instrument, “DK” is a singer-song writer performing originals (in the folk/rock-punk spectrum and roots/Americana) with complex arrangements and a highly innovative and percussive style on both acoustic and electric mountain dulcimer (the "Joy Machine"). Her "quirky and smart" songs celebrate all the crucial things in life: unrequited love, falling for feral cats, and treating yourself with kindness. www.reverbnation.com/dknthejoymachine "... naughty and nice music... a folk artist like no one else!" Viviana - Stark Realty "... a rare example of contemporary folk, ancient as a medieval melody, wide as the sun." KME - Karel Music Expo “The diversity of her music is one of the highpoints to DK’s music. She has such a passion, love, and respect for what she does that each song she crafts/creates come out sounding original, quirky, and smart. It is, however, her command over the dulcimer that is the best part to how DK and her Joy Machine sound to others.” Issac Davis - Junior's Cave Online Magazine *** MORE ABOUT SYSTEME D: Système D is a power-house combo of four dynamic, female musicians: a crazy folk singer-guitarist, a Polish accordionist and percussionist, a furious ukulelist, and a funky guitarist and trumpeter. Together, they create a whimsical whirl of French folk fused with Romani swing, rousing the crowd with original songs in English that bring unique, fun, & lively music with a “get off your feet and dance” attitude. A distinct “joie de vivre”– direct from Paris, France!! Not to be missed!! www.systemed-lesite.com/en/
