Writer-photographer Matt Herp, of the Courier-Journal, assembled a nice piece and photo gallery about last week's Coalition for the Homeless Give-A-Jam benefit. This year's Give-A-Jam partnered with RX: Housing Veterans, which focuses on trying to bring an end to Veteran homelessness - an excellent cause, indeed.
We were delighted to be on a lineup that included a number of good friends.
Louisville troubadour John Gage opened the show.
Natalie Harris, Executive Director of the Coalition for the Homeless, received a "Compassionate Laureate" award from Jud Hendrix.
Matt caught some nice shots of Louisville jazz man Dick Sisto, who channeled some Bill Evans for us.
The event was sold out -
thanks in no small part to Tim O'Brien, who played private concert before the main event
and returned to the big stage for a fine second set.
And on a chilly December night a number of area restaurants, including Rye, El Camino, and Irish Rover, supported the cause with hot soups.
