With overflowing gratitude, the Red Dirt Relief Fund is excited to host their first socially distant live show this year as a ‘thank you’ to everyone who donated to help our Oklahoma music industry survive the impacts of the pandemic.
“A Show of Gratitude” will feature four Oklahoma musicians who received COVID Crisis Grants from Red Dirt Relief Fund (RDRF) last year during the pandemic. Musicians performing on June 5th at the beloved Tower Theatre in Oklahoma City include Jabee, Carter Sampson, Stephen Salewon, and Kiersten White. Tickets are available on the Tower Theatre’s website and proceeds will benefit the Red Dirt Relief Fund to help more musicians in the future.
Red Dirt Relief Fund provides a safety net of critical assistance to Oklahoma music people. Since the pandemic began, RDRF has granted $272,000 to 700+ music people in Oklahoma.
Founded in 2012 by an all-volunteer board, RDRF helps Oklahoma music industry professionals facing unforeseen emergencies that prevent them from working. They provide grant funding directly to music people in crisis, traditionally up to $3,000 annually/$10,000 lifetime max. From 2012-2019, RDRF granted a total of $192,350 to 67 music people across 15 Oklahoma counties to help them recover from accidents, chronic medical issues, natural disasters, substance abuse treatment and mental health crisis.
Program support for the Red Dirt Relief Fund provided in part by Kirkpatrick Foundation and Oklahoma Arts Council.
