A Special Way to Help Katrina Survivors

Detroit Brooks and the Cousin Rich Banjo
There are quite a few ways to help Hurricane Katrina survivors, but there is one that has a special place in my heart and my wallet, the Katrina's Piano Fund.
Started by soundmen John "Klondike" Koehler and Juan LaBostrie, they have been working to rebuild the lives of New Orleans area musicians by sending them instruments to replace those lost during the hurricane.

Through the generosity of many good folks, including the producers of this weekend's annual Rhythm & Roots Festival in Charlestown, Rhode Island, the fund has now replaced all but two dozen instrutments of the 300 applications they received.
Katrina's Piano Fund is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization. Click here for more information about how you can help.
