Week 19-Chiaroscuro by Butch Ross

In Uncategorized on January 22, 2010 at 2:34 pm

This week was a little different situation than normal and i consider that a welcome change, particularly in light of whats going on in Haiti. Local Dulcimer player Butch Ross called last weekend and asked if i’d be interested in collaborating on a track of his in the name of a benefit for Haiti. I said hell yeah. I’d never worked with Butch, but I thought two people coming together to make something to try and help was as good a paradigm for what we need to do to help as anything i could think of. I said lets do it and we got to work immediately. I didn’t really know how it would pan out or how much we could raise, but i didn’t care. All you can do is make an effort to change things.

Butch set up his website to feature this week’s downloadable track and a Paypal account specifically to enable “pay what you want” donations for ADRA and Doctor’s without Borders at Butchross.com. I’m going to be working on facilitating some other things to help get more aid headed that way, that i will post on here as it develops.

Stuff we used:
Dulcimer
Piano
Glockenspiel
Bass
Banjo
Vibraphone
Reason
Acoustic guitar
shaker egg
Drums
