Celtic Connections and Celtic Music Radio will be supporting the work of "Mary's Meals", a charity which has been working in Haiti for several years, providing meals for 12000 children. As the charity was already "on the ground" in Haiti, they are already providing food and medical supplies to large numbers of earthquake victims.

There will be collecting buckets at many Celtic Connections events over the next fortnight, or you can donate via telephone, post or online.

Mary's Meals is a fantastic initiative. Throughout the world, they're providing daily school meals to around 360,000 children. The Celtic Connections appeal is to reinforce their work in Haiti - providing food and medical supplies in the short term, and in the longer term supporting the pupils, helping with the repair and reconstruction of schools, and supporting the wider recovery.

The founder of Mary's Meals will be joining Iain Anderson in a public "in conversation" session at Celtic Connections on 27 Jan at 12.30, along with Jack McConnell (former first minister of Scotland) and Duncan Bannatyne (Dragon's Den). We'll be broadcasting it live on Celtic Music Radio.

I've inquired of my Pacific Northwest musical friends regarding what kind of a benefit event might be organized. I have friends in the folk, bluegrass, blues, street performer and vaudeville communities. I've personally inquired about the idea of hosting such an event at two different venues. A friend has asked about doing the same at a smaller third venue. Unfortunately, nothing concrete has been organized yet.

I've only heard of one event that already happened last Friday, at a venue called Hale's Palladium. I found out about it too late to attend.

One of the two venues that I approached about hosting an event in Seattle, The Triple Door, had already agreed to host a music benefit for Haiti on February 7th. They told me that they wouldn't be opposed to hosting a second event.

Yesterday, I found out that my friend Eric Apoe had received confirmation that the folks at Egan's Ballard Jam House 1707 Northwest Market Street Seattle, WA 98107 have graciously offered to host a benefit event. I contacted Eric about working together on the event. He's organized some very successful benefit events in the past. All funds will go to Food For The Poor. The date is set for February 25th. The event will feature about 20 players. Many have already volunteered their efforts.

There's a UK cd single coming out, by a bunch of artists such as Susan Boyle, James Blunt, Michael Buble, Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis, Mika, Kylie Minogue, James Morrison, Take That (with Robbie Willams) and many more. These musicians came together (sort of like USA For Africa did with "We Are The World") and recorded R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts". This benefit project was put together by music mogul Simon Cowell. The U.S. street date for this import single will be 2/9/10.

One UK blog (Neil McCormick, ranting against remakes such as the abovementioned "Everybody Hurts" on grounds of artistic taste) suggests another alternative, to donate a track to www.musicforrelief.org. I haven't verified its bona fides, but it looks good at first glance.

as I'm an old musician and born into a family of solid hard working manual labouring
early 20th cent Trade Unionists...

I can't help thinking along the lines of cut out the middle man
and just do the immediate right thing.

if you are fit and able and skilled enough to ship out and fight/help;
do it now through the right agencies and fly out to Haiti.

If not, send money direct to proper charities with a proven track record
of digging in and dealing with blood sweat and tears.

Buying a download mp3 or going for a good social night out
to feed the ego of wet poncy liberal singers and actors
and make a public show of how right on supportive you are of good causes..

well its just a lot of easy middle class wank.

apologies if I offend.

Me, i'm old school lefty, shouldn't even be any need for charities
in a positely lovely rightious socialist utopia..

I'm taking a huge bag of cotton rich socks to my be recycled for disaster cash
at my nearest trustworthy charity asap.

All this fund raising is great...But...and it's a big BUT, what the hell is happening on the ground?
No Aid seems to be getting through to the people who need it most!
Is the US trying to outdo it's incompetence apres Katrina?
For God's Sakes get some organisation going, otherwise people are gonna starve while aid food is piling up in hangars!

do you know what amused / revolted me on the first day the news of this biblical proportion disaster was reported..

Uk tv news reporter on the scene interviewed a bright bushy tailed
young female American christian missionary who could only
comment hanna montana like on her own immediate personal discomfort as her entire crew of healthy young christian missionarys were scooped safely back to amerca
on the first priority available jetliner back home to disneyland.


why the fuck were they there in the first place
if they could not stomach up in a real diabolical emergeny to helping out the local survivors in their darkest and direst needs. ??!!??

Please try to keep this thread on track and forget about the smart-arsed comments for now - people are dying. As the thread says: "Music benefits for Haiti".

In Dublin (Ireland), in the Portobello Hotel, Sth. Richmond St., 5 February, 8:30 pm. Fund-raising benefit gig for the Gena Heraty Haiti Fund. Many local musicians, raffles, and late-nite dancing after.

This is for an orphanage for disabled children set up 18 years ago by a woman from Mayo, and now badly in need of help. For further details see:

Here in our Navy town, we have just welcomed back a number of rescue, medical and military folks who spent time in Haiti in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake. The reports they bring back are of a chaotic crime and incompetence plagued island where those things urgently needed by the people are backing up in warehouses, on wharves and other temporary locations for want of a way to distribute them or a system by which to do it. Roads and other transportation arteries are clogged or unusable in many cases. Worse, government incompetence and/or graft is preventing any workable solution.

I have worked in the non-profit health and human services world for many years. What I am saying to you is that I understand and applaud your heartfelt need to contribute. People in the world of arts and entertainment are often the most generous of souls. But, before you give, or encourage others to give, make sure you have some assurance that the money will be put to good use and not lost to graft or incompetence, both of which are a huge problem in Haiti right now. At least one aid convoy has been openly attacked by armed thieves.

Haiti is both a beautiful country with rich traditions and a place that has never learned to govern itself since achieving independence from France in around 1804 or so. Despots have often controlled the populace with terror and sucked it dry with graft. Most of the populace is poorly educated and unable to lift itself out of grinding poverty. It was the absolute worst place on earth for this earthquake to have occurred. Millions have been given by people around the world. But when aid money comes to this island, it often disappears into official pockets or is simply never accounted for.

When I hear a song such as "Haiti," which Belafonte did in his calypso days, it speaks to the haunting beauty of the place but always reminds me of the heartbreak and want which is the average Haitian's daily diet.
