The merging of the Ash Grove and Get Lit was celebrated May 19th at the home of Barbara Williams. The event was both a fundraiser to support educating LAUSD students, and an intimate performance with acts including: Jackson Browne, Claudia Lennear, Bernie Pearl and Barbara Morrison, Patrick Ferris, Luis Rodriguez, with John Densmore and a special appearance by Jane Fonda. Renowned music industry analyst, critic, and author of the Lefsetz Letter, Bob Lefsetz, was also in attendance and wrote a dazzling review of the performances which you can read on his blog here:
“For radical dreamers who dare to imagine and create new worlds.” This event was deemed a major success for Get Lit, that was able to raise money to bring music, civics, and poetry instruction to over 10,000 LAUSD kids. Thank you to everyone who donated and took part in the event. Special thanks to Barbara Williams for hosting the event and to all of the amazing artists who performed.
