Thank You!
It is easy to associate extreme poverty with other countries, far away from America, forgetting the fact that poverty is very much a reality for some children and their families, here in the United States. A recent news report illustrated life in the Appalachian Mountain areas of eastern Kentucky. The show instilled an immediate need to help these children and their families who live in unthinkable conditions, going without many items that Americans take for granted, like clean water, food, proper medical care and school supplies and personal hygiene items. These people live in an area with three times the national poverty rate, and the shortest life span in the nation.

Amy Guerrieri, an Old Greenwich resident, Mom, and owner of The Upper Crust Bagel Company, Arcadia Cafe, LexZee Catering, and founder of ROCKIN' WATER™, saw the news report and immediately committed to finding a way to help these desperate families. Together, with some of her co-workers and friends, Amy traveled to Kentucky to personally visit some of the neediest schools, health clinics and families in the rural Appalachian area, working directly with the public schools and the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) and has not created an on-going donation program - R.A.M.P. - the Rockin' Appalachian Mom Project - to help provide a healthy and nutritious alternatives to the children of that community and help support "one family at a time."

The goals of the mission are many: to deliver much needed daily essentials like personal hygiene products and school supplies, while also educating the families about basic nutrition and providing them with healthier alternatives. The group also wants to deliver a message of neighborly love and support. And while we are all facing difficult challenges in our own lives, they pale in comparison to the challenges faced daily by these fellow Americans.

Thank you for your support

05/05/09 PRESS RELEASE: Rob Mathes Naked Soul Concert - June 12 NYC

mwb logo

Naked Soul Series
at the Rubin Museum of Art NYC

Orchestral Songs with String Quartet and Percussion

Friday, June 12, 7 pm
Rubin Museum of Art · 150 West 17th Street
New York, NY 10011

Tickets: $40/advance and $45/door

About Naked Soul: Naked Soul is one of the most unique concert series in NYC as it is all acoustic and unplugged - no mics or amps (Naked). The Rubin Museum is the only museum in North America whose collection is dedicated to artwork of the Himalayas (Soul). Their intimate theater only seats 137 and has perfect acoustics. Slides of any pieces of art that speaks to the artist's music are shown behind the artist during the appropriate songs at the performance. The artist's are encouraged to make connections between the artwork and their music. After the show, the audience is given a free tour of the museum. Time Out NY calls Naked Soul an "innovative" and "cool" series. Tickets available at http://www.rmanyc.org/nakedsoul or by calling the museum M-F 11am-5pm at 212-620-5000 ext 344

About Rob Mathes and Orchestral Songs: Rob Mathes has produced music for people as far flung as Carly Simon and Panic At The Disco and arranged music for artists as wide ranging as Lou Reed, Jay Z, and Renee Fleming and Beyonce, Elton John and Yo Yo Ma. Bonnie Raitt and Aaron Neville have recorded his songs but all of this activity exists to support his work as an artist. In a rare appearance for the Naked Soul series, Rob brings together a string quartet of some of New York's finest musicians led by Max Mendel on Viola and Master Percussionist Ben Wittman (Paul Simon, Laurie Anderson, Jonatha Brooke, Paula Cole) to perform music from his record Orchestral Songs, recorded in 2007 with members of the London Symphony at Abbey Road Studios in London. A searing record of sophisticated yet Pop-oriented settings of Poetry by W.C. Williams, Yeats and others, be prepared for an evening of romantic music, songs that suggest the music of Joni Mitchell or Nick Drake on one hand and the music of Benjamin Britten on the other.

Note from Rob Mathes

This is going to be one of the most special events of the past few
years for me. I am playing some of the songs off Orchestral Songs, other brand new works, and music off of Evening Train. Joining me are the amazing Percussionist Ben Wittman and a String Quartet featuring Max Mendel and members of Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble. It will be an evening of very special music I believe, stuff I have not played live before.

The Naked Soul series at the Rubin is completely unique. Rosanne Cash, Jonatha Brooke, Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and many others have been a part of it over the past few years. What makes it special are two things:

1. NO AMPLIFICATION---You hear completely acoustic performances in a beautiful acoustic space. The hall only fits 137 people and it becomes an incredibly intimate and artful experience.

2. THE RUBIN'S COLLECTION OF HIMALAYAN ART--Each artist has a tour of the museum where he/she picks works that mirror the themes within that artiist's music and these images are projected behind the performance
at particular times. The art collection is phenomenal.

Hope you can join me there.
