    Well with such a theme it is easy to find a U2 song that fits the season, here is another take on Pride. This song was at least sung at several of the Concerts in Conspiracy of Hope US Tour, they did to benefit Amnesty International.

    Mates of State, a husband and wife duo on keyboards and drums, is a band we really love. They've done lots of benefit concerts over the years, but most recently in New Haven, CT, on March 5, they did a show benefiting the ACLU.

    It seems we can't make a video these days without getting interrupted by a kid or two. 😫

    Shelter from the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast was a one-hour, commercial-free benefit concert television special that aired simulcast worldwide on September 9, 2005 at 8 p.m. ET/CT live (with a 30-second tape delay) from New York City and Los Angeles and tape delayed in the Mountain Time Zone and Pacific Time Zones. The special raised money for the relief efforts from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It was broadcast in over 100 different countries. All proceeds went to the American Red Cross or The Salvation Army.

    Dr John performed so I picked on of his classics.

    And a U2 song I have not attempted before because it is hard to play. Although I'm not a 100% happy I guess this will have to do for today. Here is my take on BAD. This song got a lengthy version at Live Aid, because Bono went into the crowd and had a hard time getting back to the stage (there is more to the story I guess, check out this link: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...areer-20140710 if you want to know more).

    Good morning, everyone! And to those celebrating Easter and Passover, I wish you joy.

    Phenomenal music has been brought so far and I've truly enjoyed reading about the benefits. What a great start!

    Thanks so very much! Linda

    For Season of the Ukulele 270, we're playing songs by artists who have appeared at Benefit Concerts. The Concert for Bangladesh is the granddaddy of all benefit concerts. Though the band as a unit did not play, Badfinger members Pete Ham, Tom Evans, and Joey Molland all played at the event, with Pete famously playing "Here Comes The Sun" with George H for the first ever live performance of the song. Here's "Take It All", played on tenor ukulele with singing. I overdubbed a Ubass and harmony vocal line.

    Back in the days when I was an avid golfer, my regular playing partner would characterize many of my golf shots as: “Ill conceived… AND poorly executed.” This simple Noodle of Carole King’s, Up On The Roof fits right in with that “golfing” spirit.


    The song was performed by James Taylor at the Concert of New York City on October 20, 2001 at Madison Square Garden in NYC, NY - USA. Aside from performing for charity, the concert was purposed to honor the first responders from New York City’s Fire and Police Departments, their families… and those who lost their lives in the Islamic-terrorist attacks that brought down the landmark Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.

    "Come Together: A Night for John Lennon's Words and Music" Originally planned to celebrate Lennon's accomplishments, the concert took place on October 2, 2001, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, shortly after 9/11 and exactly one week before the 61st anniversary of Lennon's birth. It was dedicated to "New York City and its people" and presented as a fundraiser for the Robin Hood Foundation. "Imagine" was sung by Yolanda Adams and Billy Preston.
