Haiti benefit Saturday

The North Columbia Schoolhouse presents Singing for Haiti, a singer/songwriter showcase to benefit ongoing relief efforts.

Irina Rivkin, Maren Metke and friends will sing spirited music in an evening of celebration and support for Haiti.

Maren Metke is a pianist/singer/songwriter playing original, soulful, emotive music with a sometimes percussive, indi, blues and folk edge.

Rose Street House of Music founder and singer-songwriter Irina Rivkin has performed for 25 years, from her childhood singing Russian folk and American jazz in a family band, to performing her own songs for the last 15 years. She expresses insightful, gutsy, vocal world-folk originals, journeying into the personal and political, with occasional travels into Russian and Spanish language lyrics. Irina layers her poetic lyrics with rich textured harmonies, swirling with vocal percussive beats, all created live on-the-spot using her loop station instrument.

Funds raised will be donated to the nonprofit organization Bumi Sehat for medical care, particularly for women and children. For more information visit http://www.sakthifoundation.org/haiti.
