Tangiers Blues Band and Gary Clark Jr. - Concerts to Benefit Weill Cornell Health Workers

It's not too late! You can still donate and watch the concert (above video).

On the evening of Saturday, April 11, New Yorkers and fans across the nation went online to watch a virtual benefit concert by the Tangiers Blues Band and special guest Gary Clark Jr. streamed by the Egremont Barn. The concert is listed as one of the best streamed performance of the stay-at-home era by RollingStone. New York City is an epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis and that means that Weill Cornell Medicine is fighting on the front lines of this pandemic. Thanks to the Tangiers, Clark Jr., and fans, the virtual benefit concert raised money for the frontline healthcare works of Weill Cornell Medicine.

During the streaming event two concerts featured the Tangiers Blues Band shows from Massachusetts’ Egremont Barn in August 2019 and December 2019, along with their February 2020 set at the Sunset Marquis for a Morrison Hotel Gallery event, the latter show featuring Gary Clark Jr. sitting in with the Tangiers Blues Band.

Weill Cornell Medicine is responding fast as New York City is an epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis. Over just the last week, the medical center has dramatically increased its intensive care capacity. Operating and recovery rooms have been converted into new intensive care units. ICU specialists and teams of physicians and nurses redeployed from other departments are leading the charge. Every one of our brave and committed front line workers is working long hours under demanding conditions to provide constant care for their patients and our community.
