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.”

Help-The Beatles Benefit for Rocky Neck Cultural Center
Bird Mancini and T Max team up to create a wonder tribute to the Beatles in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles single "Help!" Karen Ristuben from the Center adds a cameo. Featuring: BIRD MANCINI (duo) www.birdmancini.com "a cosmopolitan fusion pop music in the most adventurous, inclusive sense of the term." -The Boston Globe "Bird Mancini is a mélange of pop perfection, incorporating virtuoso musicianship, a knowledge of musical forms and the smarts to deliver everything with joy and gusto!" -The Noise A power duo/band, two lead singers, guitar, accordion, harmonica, melodica, bass, drums with intriguing songs fusing rock and jazzy blues with a pop edge. Can play as a 4 piece band or duo. BIRD MANCINI, Boston's accordion/guitar rock duo, has released their 5th CD, the Latin flavored "Bird Mancini Lounge" on Second Story Records. This acclaimed duo features eclectic and at times a bit psychedelic acoustic rock pop style with lush vocal arrangements, blues-tinged guitar, accordion, harmonica, and a variety of percussion, bells and whistles. If the occasion warrants, the duo also performs as a full band, adding Joel White on bass and Joe Jaworski on drums to the mix. In recent years they've toured the West Coast and performed for the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Boston, New York City and in Liverpool UK at The Cavern Club. Along with critical acclaim and an ASCAP/Boston Music Award nomination, Bird Mancini were twice named among the Top 10 Year's Best by New England's Metronome Magazine. They've opened for Leon Russell, David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), Joan Osborne, Gregg Allman, Jonathan Edwards, James Montgomery, The Stompers, The Outlaws, Mighty Sam McClain and the Pousette-Dart Band. Gospel choirs in country churches and Kansas City blues and swing were Ruby Bird's early upbringing, while Billy Carl Mancini cut his guitar-playing teeth on high school rock and roll bands covering songs by 60's greats like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and the Stones. Their recordings have an astonishingly colorful palette--Indie-Music.com says, "It's so refreshing to hear such great variety on every single track and with such consistency and quality." As AllMusic.com puts it, "Bird Mancini is likely to please a wide array of listeners." T MAX T MAX is a man of many hats (literally and figuratively). But all the figurative hats lead back to creating music/art and promoting fellow artists. He's the singer/ songwriter/ storyteller who runs The Noise (New England's longest running music magazine). He also founded Boston Rock Opera, wrote two folk-rock operas, released seven solo albums, produced Boston Rock 'n' Roll Trading Cards, was the music director for Project Eno (a tribute to Brian Eno), lectured on marketing music media at Emerson College, runs a record label (Dove Records), was an artist in wood, is an art photographer, graphic artists, and to show that he's not just interested in fields of art, he placed 4th in the US Open in 1988 (playing chess). His recorded music enjoys lots of airplay on WMBR, WMFO and WXRV the River. New England music legend Willie "Loco" Alexander say, " T Max is a man from another century, like Ben Franklin or Ian Whitcomb, a man of a thousand voices (and hats). His music runs the gamut of standards to scatcreating songs from the lost jukeboxes of time. He is the voice of reason and rhyme from the pop choirs of history. Amen." North Shore music Goddess Julie Dougherty says, " His love of music is not only evident but infectious if you've seen him live, you'd know that he is only half the show, the audience is the other half. He engages you, tells stories, sings some great old cover tunes with his own interpretations, and asks you to be part of the conversation. An evening spent with T Max is like being with an old friend you haven't seen in a while a somewhat crazy old friend with child-like openness that pulls you right in. Great energy, talent and sometimes an almost Beatles style of effects/ arrangements that add a wonderful dimension to the listening pleasure. Go T!" Special Guest: KAREN RISTUBEN 50% of proceeds will go to benefit the Rocky Neck Cultural Center.

Joseph Silovsky
with Joseph Silovsky
Joseph Silovsky is an object-oriented performance artist known for his odd mechanical creations. Combining his passions for construction, history, and theory, he builds machines, contraptions, puppets, and stages, which he employs in productions that bring to life arcane figures and the minutiae that surround them. His works explore communication, driven by his underlying belief that nothing is more important than to keep trying to communicate. An active performer and creator since 1990, he has performed solo work at St. Anns Warehouse, PS122, Petes Candy Store, Dixon Place, and elsewhere. Silovsky has also been a technical director and performer with companies such as The Builders Association and Radiohole.
