By now it’s unsurprising: Many of the musicians playing flood relief shows have been affected themselves and have gotten involved in relief concerts.
Such is the case Thursday night at eTown Hall, where Jayme Stone was planning to just celebrate an album release. Now, like so many other concerts in and around Boulder, the focus has turned to helping those hurt by the flood. That includes two members of Stone’s band: violinist Enion Tiller and bassist Eric Thorin.
Both musicians are Lyons residents. Thorin has been displaced due to the destruction, and Tiller completely lost her home. The first place some of the money from this show will go is to paying those two musicians.
After that, Stone said, the proceeds will go to flood relief charities.
If that’s not enough incentive, go for the music.
“It’s a CD launch for my new record. It’s my fourth album and the record is sort of all over the map, quite literally,” Stone said. “I’ve done a lot of travelling and spent some time in West Africa and studied a lot of music from different world cultures, and I bring all those to bear in this new body of work that’s mostly original compositions and some re-working of traditional melodies.”
Hear the new music for a $20 ticket toward a good cause at eTown Hall tomorrow at 7 p.m.
