Live for Hope: Karp/Foley Music Project To Benefit Ovarian Cancer Research

November 30, 2015 by

American roots music artisans Peter Karp and Sue Foley recently released Live for Hope, a double live CD to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

The first CD in the set, Peter Karp’s The Arson’s Match, was originally broadcast live on Sirius Satellite Radio during a 2004 performance at the historic Bottom Line in New York City to a sold out audience. The Arson’s Match puts the considerable talents of guitarist-singer-songwriter Peter Karp on full display. Backed by a glowing ensemble of consummate talent, Karp, a masterful slide guitarist and exhilarating vocalist, teams up with guitarist Mick Taylor of the legendary Rolling Stones. Together, Karp and his Roadshow Band put forth a solid performance of Karp’s finest original songs.

The second CD is Change from Sue Foley, an award-winning, live acoustic blues album recorded in 2004 at Toronto’s preeminent listening room and live music venue, Hugh’s Room. Change is a notable departure from Foley’s distinguishable high energy, soulful blues-rock sound and reveals her softer and more playful side on this CD, which earned her three Maple Blues Awards including Acoustic Album Of  The Year.
By donating $ 20.00 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, you’ll not only help in the quest to find a cure, but you’ll also get a copy of the CD set.  All proceeds from the sale and download of the CD set will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in loving memory of Peter Karp’s late wife, Mary Lou Karp, who died from the disease in 2009.

Editor’s Note- Peter Karp and The Roadshow Band celebrate the release of Live For Hope at the Turning Point in Piermont , NY on Saturday December 5, 2015 . The show starts at 8:00 PM and tickets are $20. All proceeds go to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. The Turning Point is located at 468 Piermont Avenue in Piermont.
