Raising money to build an ecovillage in New Jersey
Kicking around some ideas for how to get folks interested in tomorrow’s incredible concert — featuring three amazing singers — we thought about Mille Bojer’s question in connection with the UN’s 2030 Agenda “Transforming Our World”: “what if we really meant it?”
Saturday, August 18: EVNJ Summer Concert
A continual challenge for our project is to be accumulating a “nest egg” toward an eventual land purchase. One way we try to do that is the Fun Way — an annual fundraising benefit concert. This year it will be held on Saturday, August 18, and it will feature a very special program.
Elaine Silver has performed at colleges, festivals, churches, clubs and children’s events throughout North America and Europe. She was featured nationally on The Wisdom Channel and on New Jersey Network’s program State of the Arts. A recipient of a Garden State Music Award for Outstanding Folk Performer, “Faerie Elaine” brings magic, love and blessings to her concerts. http://www.elainesilver.com
An award-winning songwriter, engaging performer and passionate environmentalist, Kathy Moser is dedicated to bringing positive change to the world through music, both on and off stage. For many years she was a principal with the Garden State Cohousing group, and she’s supported our own project numerous times through appearances at benefit concerts and active participation. http://www.kathymoser.com/
NJ-born Kyrie London is a singer-songwriter, artist, and activist, who is passionate about bringing people together through the healing power of music. Her collaborations with Grammy-winning producers and sound mixers have helped create her signature mix of pop, soul, dance, and hip hop. She appeared recently at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton (Mercer County). http://www.kyrielondon.com.
