New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village

Musicians’ Village, a cornerstone of the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) post-Katrina rebuilding effort, is designed to both construct a community and preserve a culture. Conceived by New Orleans natives Harry Connick, Jr. and Branford Marsalis, Musicians’ Village will provide a home for both the artists who have defined the city’s culture and the sounds that have shaped the musical vernacular of the world.


In 2001, The Blues Foundation established the HART Fund through which The Blues Foundation provides assistance to Blues musicians and their families in times of great financial need due to medical emergencies. Donations to the HART Fund are dedicated 100% to artist relief efforts. Disbursements began in 2003 and have been used to pay medical bills, obtain needed medical care and assist with funeral expenses. In late 2005, contributions were temporarily earmarked to provide some financial relief for blues musicians severly impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Over the years, contributions have been made by our members and other donors and donations have also come from specific benefit events.

Women’s Bean Project

Our Mission: "To teach, through employment in on-site businesses, workplace competencies for entry-level positions to women who come from backgrounds of chronic unemployment or poverty."
Our Vision: Women’s Bean Project strives to break the cycle of chronic unemployment and poverty by helping women discover their talents and develop skills by offering job readiness training opportunities.
With this stepping stone toward success, the women will be able to support themselves and their families, and create stronger role models for future generations.

New Orleans Habitat for Humanity

Our Mission
To build houses in partnership with sponsors, volunteers, communities, and homeowner families, whereby families are empowered to transform their own lives
To eliminate poverty housing in the New Orleans area while serving as a catalyst to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.

New Orleans Musicians Clinic

The Mission of the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation is to keep music alive by sustaining New Orleans musicians and tradition bearers in body, mind and spirit. We do this through providing access to health and social services through the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic, regardless of musicians’ ability to pay, and by fostering cultural opportunities that advocate for and support this effort.

The New Orleans Musicians Clinic works to provide affordable, comprehensive health care for Louisiana musicians.

 Seva's 30th celebrated by lineup full of stars
Bonnie Raitt

Seva's 30th celebrated by lineup full of stars
Joel Selvin, Chronicle Senior Pop Music Critic
Monday, September 29, 2008

Clown/activist Wavy Gravy will be long remembered for "What we have in mind is breakfast in bed for 400,000," but his enduring contribution takes place around the world from Woodstock, where he saves eyeballs in the Third World.

Bonnie Raitt and Graham Nash don red clown noses in honor of Wavy Gravy during Seva Foundation's 30th Anniversary concert on Saturday at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland.

In a procession of different T-shirts, with the ever-present fish purse he carries on a stick, Gravy presided over a 30th anniversary of Seva - the remarkable organization he dreamed up with visionary doctor, Larry Brilliant, current chief of the philanthropic arm of Google - in which he hosted an extraordinary array of leading rock musicians who gladly joined each other's sets and sang the praises of Gravy and his good works for nearly five hours Saturday at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland.

Bonnie Raitt set the tone early in the evening. After opening with an acoustic version of James Taylor's "Rainy Day Man," she asked the surprise opening act back onstage, gospel belter Ruthie Foster, whom Gravy invited to join the show after seeing her earlier that day at the San Francisco Blues Festival. Slide guitar ace Roy Rogers and saxophonist Steve Berlin joined in for a blues guitar duel on "Gnawin' on It," and Jackson Browne came out to sing "Thing Called Love" with her.

She brought the house down when she introduced yet another surprise, Elvis Costello, who dug hard into the Raitt staple, "Love Has No Pride," as two white-haired gentlemen silently entered from the wings and joined harmony vocals on the chorus: David Crosby and Graham Nash.

"This is a power-packed lineup tonight," Raitt crowed, "and there's going to be a lot of people guesting on each other's sets, but I'm going to be the queen bee of that department."

Before it was over, and Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady of Hot Tuna had jumped onstage in the concert's final moments with Los Lobos - which had already hosted Browne, Costello and Raitt on its set - the event had become a kind of musical mix and match from this tidy repertory company, pausing only for encomiums to Gravy, Seva and the work they do fighting blindness amid the dire poverty of Asia.

Costello was nothing short of amazing. He opened the concert's second half alone on acoustic guitar with a startling new song, "Down Among the Wine and Spirits," followed by a ribald T Bone Burnett collaboration, also unheard of, "From Sulphur to Sugar Cane," and took his brief solo turn to a rousing finish with "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding." He also with Los Lobos - Raitt decorating the sound with bottleneck. His earlier duet with Raitt - Crosby and Nash filling out the choruses - was worth the entire evening's price of admission alone.

Browne followed Raitt with a dense, largely leaden set drawn mainly from his new album, "Time the Conqueror," greatly enhanced by roof-raising vocalists Chavonne Morris and Alethea Mills, who brought so much needed vitality and joy to his performance.

Crosby and Nash, looking as comfortable as a well-worn pair of shoes and singing impossibly like a couple of choir boys, brought out songwriter Joel Rafael. The duo has been performing Rafael's song "This Is My Country" on their recent Crosby, Stills and Nash tour. Rafael, a Woody Guthrie admirer from San Diego County, convinced the duo to sing harmonies on his recording of the song, a pointed political protest song in the plain-speaking tradition of Guthrie with a ringing chorus that struck pay dirt with the Paramount crowd. Crosby, Nash and Rafael left the stage to a standing ovation.

It is, as was pointed out frequently during the course of the evening, an amazing thing. A bunch of people came together to sing songs and listen to music in one room on one side of the world, and hundreds of successful surgeries restore sight to people take place on the other. Starting with a Christmastime concert at the Oakland Auditorium by the Grateful Dead in 1979 that raised $100,000, Seva has been funded by a parade of rock stars inveigled, coaxed, cajoled and pestered into it by the relentless Gravy, a man whose compassion knows no bounds and who sees the human comedy for what it is.

He is someone still delightfully stuck in the '60s, puffs of wooly, gray hair sticking out from under his white derby, dressed head to toe in tie-dye, his twinkling eyes a little red-rimmed, believing for all he's worth that he can change the world. And doing it.

Actor Peter Coyote, acting as host to the concert's second half, drove the point home. "You gotta admit," he said, "the hippies were right."
