In response to the current challenges we are all facing with the COVID-19 crisis, we at the Music Moves Mountains Foundations are trying to adapt and modify our mission to still meet the needs of the community while supporting our musicians, music educators, MTs, and partners who have been hit hard financially. This special emergency fund is designated for our volunteer movers and shakers who have so willingly been there when we needed them - now it's time to "play it forward" and support our music mercenaries during the pandemic. As a perk for donating, we have made available digital downloads of past MMMF benefit concert performances on our website.
Donate as little as $10 and you will receive a coupon code to use at https://musicmovesmountains.org/shop/ These are some very one-of-a-kind collaborations from legendary Austin artists (including some Grammy Award Winners and Texas Music Hall of Famers!) and MMMF recipients covering everyone from Jimi Hendrix to The Beatles! These special compilations include tracks from the likes of Larry Seaman, Kevin McKinney, Dan Dyer, Tameca Jones, Adrian Quesada, David Garza, Jesse Sublett, Mike Flanigin, Colin Gilmore, Matt Hubbard, Henri Herbert, English Teeth, The Beatle Boys and many more!
Music is one of the most crucial resources to keep us connected as a society, as well as a powerful tool to keep us all healthy, happy and hopeful. We need to ensure our music community stays strong to help others. Help us keep moving mountains!
MOTTO: The power of music can change lives. Let’s use it to help those in need by giving hope, health, and happiness through the healing art of music.
