Benefit a success!

We were very honored to be part of the Freight & Salvage benefit show (with Wake the Dead, Eric & Suzy Thompson, and Keith Terry). All proceeds went to earthquake victims in Pakistan and to the Jazz Foundation of America which helps musicians affected by Katrina. Together we raised some $2600, and being inspired by the Freight show benefit, the Hellman Family Foundation (that’s Warren of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass) donated $10,000 to the Jazz Foundation. (See our posting on Nov. 13, below, for info on the benefit compilation CD we’re part of.)

THANKS for your support!
the gals

P.S. Does anyone have a video of Evie and Keith in their crazy wigged out mumu duo number “Tea for Two” that night?! We were rolling on the floor!
