A double-bill fundraiser featuring Andrew Corbett and MudLark will benefit the Davis-based nonprofit Sahaya International. Doors open at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at International House, Davis, 10 College Park.

Koen Van Rompay, the founder of Sahaya and an AIDS researcher at UC Davis, travels annually to India, where he met earlier this year with the more than 220 orphans and vulnerable children who are supported by many Davis residents, each of whom pays $30 per month.

“This program is very effective, as these children and youth are able to meet their basic needs, including education,” Van Rompay said. “However, sometimes new children and their guardians knock on our door, with desperate needs, so we do our best to get them back on their feet.

“Some of the children who are already in the program have extra expenses, such as life-saving emergency medical procedures. And finally, some of the youth also have the ambition to pursue higher education, which bears additional costs.

“To help us support these children and youth, we are organizing an evening of music.”

Corbett has a reputation for evoking peaceful memories and good feelings in his audience. His vocals are reminiscent of songwriting troubadours such as James Taylor, Jim Croce or Leon Russell.

“This is about as close to authentic singing and songwriting as you can get,” writes the editor of Acoustic Roundtable. Corbett will be joined by musical friends Jan Peters on mandolin, Laura Tjoelker on violin and Gemma Vanover on vocals.

“Any donation depending on your financial situation is appreciated,” Corbett said. “A suggested donation range for children/students and adults is $6 to $20. Everyone involved is volunteering their time, so 100 percent of the donations will be sent to India to directly support the children and the youth.”

For the second half of the evening, the audience will be treated to the music of MudLark. The trio is composed of Katie Henry, Laura Sandage and Ray Frank. The Davis folk group has charmed audiences since 2005 with their well-crafted original songs and traditional material.

“MudLark has been on hiatus for a while,” Sandage said. “We are excited to come together again for this benefit event.”

Henry added: “We look forward to seeing many of our local friends and well-wishers, and offering them the opportunity to provide a better future to many needy children.”
