The New Orleans Musicians Hurricane Relief Fund

This past Sunday while at Preservation Hall for Gospel Sunday, I had an opportunity to speak a bit with Mr. Benjamin Jaffe. I was originally curious about the Music Rising guitar presented to him by the Edge at the hall reopening, but as we spoke more I became much more interested in an organization he started with his wife. It's called the New Orleans Musicians Hurricane Relief Fund,, and it's there with the NOLA musicians from inside out helping with recovery.

As I learn more about their efforts through the site, I am most impressed and inspired by the people involved. I can really feel their care and understanding in what they are doing, and more importantly I get a good sense of the musicians and the culture being helped.

A big thank you to Mr. Jaffe for introducing me to NOMHRF. I hope to be able to contribute my efforts somehow. :)
