5-31-10: The Beechfields Record Label

May 30, 2010 at 11:10 am 2 comments

This weekend, The Beechfields Record Label will throw a benefit concert for leukemia research.

Label founder Mike Nestor stops by to tell Tom Hall about The Beechfields’ goals of putting out good music and building a musical community. Joining Mike are Alex Champagne from A Cat Called Cricket and David Manchester from Kadman.

The benefit is Saturday, June 5 at the Windup Space in Baltimore’s Station North arts district. Tickets are $7, and all the money goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. A Cat Called Cricket, Kadman, The Seldon Plan, Infinite Honey, and E. Joseph and the Phantom Heart are all on the bill.

Alex, Mike, and David all recorded in-studio performances for us:

Hear Alex play “Atlas,” from an upcoming A Cat Called Cricket EP: Hear Mike play “Ezra Jack Keats” (with David on Casio accompaniment): Hear David play…well, he doesn’t have a title — leave your suggested title for this song in our comments! Mike is trying to use microfinance both for the label and for his research as a fellow at the National Institutes for Health. Read about it at Nature.com.
