New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village Musicians’ Village, a cornerstone of the
New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) post-Katrina rebuilding effort, is designed to both construct a community and preserve a culture. Conceived by New Orleans natives Harry Connick, Jr. and Branford Marsalis, Musicians’ Village will provide a home for both the artists who have defined the city’s culture and the sounds that have shaped the musical vernacular of the world.
HART Fund In 2001, The Blues Foundation established the HART Fund through which The Blues Foundation provides assistance to Blues musicians and their families in times of great financial need due to medical emergencies.
Donations to the HART Fund are dedicated 100% to artist relief efforts. Disbursements began in 2003 and have been used to pay medical bills, obtain needed medical care and assist with funeral expenses.
In late 2005, contributions were temporarily earmarked to provide some financial relief for blues musicians severly impacted by Hurricane Katrina.
Over the years, contributions have been made by our members and other donors and donations have also come from specific benefit events.

New Orleans Habitat for Humanity
To build houses in partnership with sponsors, volunteers, communities, and homeowner families, whereby families are empowered to transform their own lives

I want to know the date of that Lynn mass show as it was my first concert and it was the first time that I ever GOT UP an boogied because the music MADE me move.
Any help is much appreciated..Don Bryant...(9...
