indigos, earle plan anti-death-penalty show

penalty concert at nashville's ryman auditorium. the event kicks
off a two-week speaking tour of tennessee by murder victims'
families who are opposed to the death penalty. earle, a longtime
opponent of the death penalty, will travel with the tour, which
will visit churches and schools throughout the state.

u.s. artists confirmed for cuban festival


jimmy buffett, public enemy's chuck d, joan osborne, the indigo
girls, me'shell ndegeocello, r.e.m.'s peter buck, and former police
members stewart copeland and andy summers are among the american
artists tapped to perform at a weeklong music festival in havana,
cuba. the american musicians will be randomly paired with cuban
musicians, spending the week of march 21-28 writing songs, before
performing a massive concert on march 28.


the event, sponsored by the non-profit organization music bridges
around the world, will be the first officially sanctioned event in
the island country since 1979's havana jams, at which billy joel,
kris kristofferson, and rita coolidge appeared. kristofferson is
scheduled to appear at this year's jam as well.


the concert has been in the planning stages for over a year, and
has received approval from the u.s. treasury department, the cuban
ministry of culture, and the cuban music institute. a spokesman for
music bridges confirms that none of the musicians is being paid for
participating.


the festival's organizer, alan roy scott, is a los angeles-based
songwriter who has overseen similar music events in the soviet
union, romania, bali, and ireland. "the reason i'm doing this in
cuba is the same reason i did it in russia," he tells the miami
herald. "we all share one planet. music is a great communicator,
and it reaches a level that transcends everything else."


other artists music bridges is reportedly inviting include sting,
bonnie raitt, and peter gabriel, the latter of whom is no stranger
to large music festivals having masterminded the massive world
music festival womad. mavericks singer raul malo, a cuban-american,
is trying to rearrange his schedule in order to attend.

subject: [ig-news] away next week


hey folks,


just to let you know that i will be away from this coming sunday
to the sunday after that.  i don't know what sort of email access
i'll have while i'm away so traffic on this list is likely to be
fairly intermittent during that period...


happy happy,
sherlyn
