“Only a life lived for others is worth living” Albert Einstein
This was the 2nd annual Breathe Easy Music Festival benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Originally it was going to take place at the home of Rob and Jill Olson who hosted this event last year. They have 2 boys, AJ and Jake that have Cystic Fibrosis. Their story and information about the event and foundation are here Breathe Easy Rob and Jill made national news when a product they had purchased to fertilize the lawn killed all of the grass and they had to find a last minute venue. Luckily the Pourhouse stepped up to host the festival. It is great to be part of an event where so many people devote their time and talent to help raise money for a cause they believe in! And a whole day spent listening to music and photographing the performances is one of my favorite things to do.
The line up was: Nicci Peper and Chris Snyder, Tony Oritiz, Elijah Adam & Shannon Libra, Kathleen Johnson with BKS, Cliffton Wales, Saving Starz, Rob Olson and Nicci Peper, Alex Johnson/Crankshaft, Tim Mahoney, Cole Allen Band and Bret Michaels as the headliner.
