The James Maddock Band and Earthman Experience with Jephté Guillaume headline Montclair’s Fourth Annual Concert for Haiti, Saturday, February 2.

“Please join us to help give children at Edeyo School a free, quality education. Bring your kids and neighbors for a night of singing, donating, eating homemade treats, and strengthening your community while helping Edeyo School, “ says Cindy Stagoff, event organizer.

Edeyo is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering children in Haiti through education. Also featured will be local musicians, including: Jazz House Kids, Stephen Bryant, Passing Notes, Big Mamou, Meredith Greenberg & Leora Perlman, Bob Mellman, Oxygen Box Band, and Eva Goldfarb & Rob Maskin.

The evening’s speakers will be Dr. James Morgan, co-founder of LAMP for Haiti and Conor Bohan, Founder/Director of HELP (Haitian Education and Leadership Program).

“For the past three years, the Montclair community has been incredibly generous in supporting Edeyo at this event,” says Stagoff. “Donations have helped Edeyo operate their school in Bel-Air, Haiti and provided support for their building fund. The need for financial support continues to be great and we hope to be able again to raise awareness about and funds for Edeyo Foundation.”
