KELLEY HUNT "DANCE OF HEARTS" PROCEEDS NET 31,000 MEALS FOR JUST FOOD AND THOSE IN NEED OF FOOD ASSISTANCE IN DOUGLAS COUNTY
JUST FOOD Executive Director Elizabeth Keever has announced that proceeds from Kelley Hunt's DANCE OF HEARTS benefit concert Feb. 10 at Liberty Hall in Lawrence have totaled more than $6,200 in concert proceeds and additional contributions of cash and food. According to Keever the money will provide more than 31,000 meals for residents of Douglas County and the surrounding region who depend on JUST FOOD for food assistance.
"We are so grateful for this significant contribution towards alleviating hunger in our community. This contribution will allow us to stock our shelves this spring as demand rises. It takes a community to fight hunger and each person who bought a ticket to "Dance of Hearts" contributed to this incredible success. We could not be more grateful for the support of Kelley Hunt, Maria the Mexican, our generous sponsors and everyone who attended," said Keever.
"Each year we do this it's a partnership between our fans, the community, our terrific sponsors, everyone who puts their heart and soul into this show on stage and the staff and volunteers at JUST FOOD," said Hunt. "It is everyone's responsibility to make sure our neighbors - children, seniors, families - have enough to eat. It is unconscionable in our city, county and region that anyone should face these issues alone. I'm grateful to everyone who collaborated to demonstrate that we all understand when one of us goes hungry, really, we all do," added Hunt.
This is the second year for "Dance of Hearts". This year's result is an increase over last year's totals which provided 30,000 meals for JUST FOOD. To learn more about JUST FOOD and to make an additional contribution GO HERE.
KELLEY GETS 3 GUEST ARTIST TRACKS ON DUKE ROBILLARD'S "DUKE AND THE DAMES OF RHYTHM" DUE OUT IN 2017
Acclaimed Grammy-nominated guitar master Duke Robillard's anticipated new project of music of the 20s and 30s - "Duke and the Dames of Rhythm" - is in the final stages in preparation for a 2017 release. More details are forthcoming but we can tell you Kelley has 3 guest artist tracks on the album alongside other guests Madeline Peyroux, Maria Muldaur, Catherine Russell, Sunny Crownover and actress/singer songwriter Elizabeth McGovern. Featured on the tracks are Duke, of course, and a terrific collection of rhythm section and horn players. The arrangements are authentic to the period and beautifully played. From what we've heard so far you won't want to miss this one when it drops.
"I have been a huge fan of Duke's since the early days of my career when I first saw him perform live on the same bill at a big festival. In my opinion he's among the most thoughful, technically skilled, open-minded and inspired guitarists I've known - world-class by any definition and one of the only truly authentic blues guitar traditionalists. And a talented producer - the real deal in every sense. Plus, he's genuinely a first-class person. I am thrilled and honored to be asked to be part of this," said Kelley.
Stay tuned - we'll give you a release date as soon as we have it.
