Sojourn Records: Charity Comp of Lowdown Hudson Blues Fest

NEW CHARITY COMPILATION TO CELEBRATE THE
2ND ANNUAL LOWDOWN HUDSON BLUES FESTIVAL

To celebrate this week's second annual Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival, presented by Brookfield Office Properties at the World Financial Center Plaza on Wednesday and Thursday, July 11-12, New York-based indie label Sojourn Records is proud to announce the exclusive release of their first edition of recordings Live From The Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival. These recordings were made July 28-30, 2011, during the festival's debut year, at the same location as this year's performances. Advance copies of the disc will only be available for sale at this week's festival and will be issued as a commercial release in both physical and digital formats at a later date.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the CD will be donated to support the Music Educators Association of NYC (MEANYC). MEANYC, founded 1989, has been dedicated to the pursuit of quality music education for every child. Funds raised are matched by charitable gift made possible by Sea Cliff Holdings LLC.

The event was recorded and mixed by Sojourn Records President Mark Ambrosino, and appearing on the release will be 2011 festival recordings of James Blood Ulmer and the Memphis Blood Blues featuring Vernon Reid, Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra and Henry Butler, Amy LaVere, Hazmat Modine, Ryan Shaw, Mike Farris and the Roseland Rhythm Review, The Beauties, Citigrass and Sojourn recording artist Danny Kalb Quartet.

This year's free Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival will feature Buddy Guy, Neko Case, John Mayall, Charles Bradley and the Extraordinaires, Quinn Sullivan, and He's My Brother She's My Sister over the two day period. This week's performances will also be recorded by Mark Ambrosino for future release, pending clearances.
