The Benefit the Bayou Fundraiser – In order to help and show solidarity with the fishing communities of the Gulf who have been so deeply impacted by the recent BP oil catastrophe, a musical fundraiser is being organized by the fishing communities of outer Cape Cod. The event will feature a performance by renowned New Orleans pianist and singer Henry Butler, and will open with the Chandler Travis Trio and a short reading by local author Heidi Jon Schmidt. The concert will be broadcast live from Provincetown’s community radio station, WOMR and live streamed on the internet with WOMR’s sister station, WWOZ in New Orleans. All funds that are raised at the concert and by pledges phoned into the stations during the simulcast will be donated to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, who support and purchase Gulf Saver Bags (these bags are designed to help remediate and restore the wetland coast of the gulf region that has been devastated by the BP oil disaster), and to the Gulf Relief Foundation – an organization started by WWOZ in New Orleans that dispenses funding to well run local charities that have been focusing on the humanitarian aspects of this disaster.
