The Lodge recently mastered a powerful album for The Killian Mansfield Foundation (KMF) whose mission is to empower children with cancer & other serious illnesses through integrative health care dedicated to treating the whole child mind, ...body & spirit.
Killian Mansfield (7/9/1993 - 8/20/2009) was a young man with a huge heart & a sincere love of music (particularly the ukulele) who died Aug. 20 after a five-year battle with synovial sarcoma, a rare form of cancer.
Thanks to Ralph Legnini, an incredible producer/engineer, Killian was able to realize his life long dream and release an album of ukulele music, “Somewhere Else,” days before his death. The album was recorded between a long hospitalization last winter and entering hospice care this past spring, and proceeds from its sale are benefiting the foundation’s cause. The album is available on iTunes and Amazon.com.
This is a beautiful album that includes incredible performances by Dr. John, Levon Helm, Todd Rundgren, John Sebastian & MORE! Please go out and buy this album, you will not regret it.
RIP Killian Mansfield.
