Making time for quake relief



FEELING helpless has prompted Tumbulgum musician Phil Eizenberg to gather fellow musicians together for a performance to raise funds for the CARE Australia Tsunami appeal.

Mr Eizenberg, who has 30 years experience as a musician, will be joined at the Tumbulgum Birdwing Cafe on Sunday by Ross Welch and Paul Ensby as well as some surprise guests.

"I felt so helpless when the tsunami hit, and from living in a flood-prone area like Tumbulgum, I know what it's like to be surrounded by floodwaters," he said. "So I thought this was a lovely way for people to donate and celebrate life while giving something back. The relief campaigns seem to have resonated around the world.

"People can come and express their response to the tragedy by helping with donations which I'm kicking off with $100."

Kingscliff musician and former Bullamakanka member Paul Ensby said he believed the tsunami was a "bloody big wake-up call" from the environment.

"Global warming is a fact of life and nature is readjusting itself which is causing big incidents," he said.

Music styles at the Tumbulgum event will include blues, rock and country with original material as well as favourites.

The Music for Tsunami Relief will be this Sunday from 1pm to 4pm (NSW)
