Keep the Light Alive: Celebrating the Music of Lowen and Navarro

2010-01-12

As we've been doing for our good friend and local Godfather of Folk Music, Ralston, the friends of Eric Lowen (of Lowen and Navarro fame) have banded together to help the singer-songwriter in his battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). This tribute CD raises dollars for Lowen and his family and for ALS research. Not only is this a nice thing to do, the artists do a great job on the L&N songbook, with Jackson Browne leading off and including Keb Mo, The Bangles, The Refugees and Eddie from Ohio. Two artists I didn't know before -- the Andy Chase Band and Charlie Wadhams -- do particularly fine jobs in this set. I remember when L&N were in town at One Trick Pony and Lowen commented that "We Belong" (the song of theirs Pat Benatar made into a megahit) "put his kids through college." This time, a musical project is attempting to lift his spirits during a challenging struggle. P.S. Lowen can no longer perform live; Navarro is going on solo. 01/10 F-Contemporary Michael J.
