New Release Raises Funds for Sandy Victims

Those looking to help disadvantaged people still suffering from the after-affects of Superstorm Sandy can enjoy tunes by family-music artists while donating to causes that make a difference. All net proceeds from Neighbor to Neighbor: Family Music for Sandy Relief will benefit neighborhood relief organizations working in the Rockaways and Long Island.

A PDF booklet comes with each digital download of these 16 songs, available now from Bandcamp and CDBaby.com.

Neighbor to Neighbor was produced by Hudson Valley children’s performer Story Laurie (Laurie McIntosh). As she looked for ways to help downstate New Yorkers recover from the destruction wrought by Superstorm Sandy, McIntosh convinced Pete Seeger, Dar Williams, Tom Chapin, Guy Davis, and Dan Zanes to provide songs. Fellow kindie music compadres, including Uncle Rock, Gustafer Yellowgold, Key Wilde and Mr. Clarke, and Dog on Fleas also contributed songs for the effort.
