April 20 marks the one-year anniversary of the BP oil disaster. Flying under the radar is an incredible music festival to benefit victims of the oil spill along the Gulf Coast. The event is sponsored by Harmony For Health & Guardians of the Gulf, as well as the Sea Shephard Conservation Society, The Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club.
The festivities take place at Pirates Cove Yacht Club in Elberta, Ala., located on the north shore of Arnica Bay. Known for hosting a variety of charity events and well-known musical acts, this venue is a perfect location for music and fun in the sun.
The impressive line-up includes: Grayson Capps & The Lost Cause Minstrels with special guests John Mooney & Guthrie Trapp, Sassafrass, Randall Bramblett, Sugarcane Jane, John Joiner, Honey Island Swamp Band with John Mooney, Walter Wolfman Washington & the Roadmasters, Johnny Barbato, Luther Wamble, Jon Cleary Trio and many more.
This show goes on the road to New Orleans the following weekend, so catch it here first.
