The Karp-Foley Band is excited to announce the release fo a double live CD to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (www.OCRF.org). The double CD set, Live for Hope, features live performances by acclaimed blues/Americana musicians, Peter Karp and Sue Foley.
The September, 2015 release date coincides with Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The first CD in the set, Peter Karp’s The Arson’s Match, was originally broadcast live on Sirius Satellite Radio during a 2004 performance at the historic Bottom Line in New Tork City to a sold out audience. Backed by a glowing ensemble of consummate talent, Karp, a masterful slide guitarist and exhilarating vocalist, teams up with gruitarist Mick Taylor of the legendary Rolling Stones. Together, Karp and his Roadshow Band put forth an inspired performance of some of Karp’s finest original songs.
The second CD, Change by Sue Foley, is an awared-winning, live acoustic blues CD recorded in 2004 at Toronto’s preeminent listening room and live music venue, Hugh’s Room. Change is a notable departure from Foley’s distinguishable high energy, soulful blues-rock sound and reveals her softer and more playful side. This CD earned Foley three Maple Blues Awards including Recording of the Year. All proceeds from the sale and download of the CD set will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in loving memory of Peter Karp’s late wife, Mary Lou Karp, who died from the disease in 2009.
“Mary Lou Bonney Karp was a remarkable writer, a poet, a daughter, a mother and my wife of 25 years. In June of 2009 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She died 9 months later on February 17, 2009. While she had vague and disconnected symptoms for years, no one saw it coming. She was misdiagnosed (which happens often) with a back problem. This CD is to honor her memory. Before Mary Lou became sick, we knew nothing about ovarian cancer. Now I know that it is a vicious, silent killer of woman and that the only way to stop it is to spread the word about early detection.” – Peter Karp
“We are really happy to be able to donate our two live CD’s to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer research. Knowing the loss that Peter and his family suffered through brought the pain and destruction of this devastating desease to light. This is the beginning of our pursuit to give back through donating our music and organizaing concerts and fundraisers, with the ultimate goal of stamping out ovarian cancer for good.” – Sue Foley
