On Saturday, June 15th, Molehill will be performing at the Hearing Aide Festival in Shelbyville, IN. All proceeds from this Festival will go to Peyton Manning’s Children’s Hospital Audiology Department.
This is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. My Grandmother was diagnosed with tinnitus when she was in her 40’s. Before the diagnosis, she maintained a piano studio outside of Philly and frequently attended concerts while raising my Dad and Aunt. As long as I can remember she always had trouble hearing, and by her later years she had almost no hearing whatsoever. It was a struggle for family and friends to communicate with her and it was an unimaginable struggle for my grandma who had once enjoyed music as a central part of her existence.
After touring for a few years in Molehill and receiving about a million comments that we were “a loud band”, I thought it would be a good idea to start offering the audience ear protection so they could enjoy the gigs a bit more.
We were honored to be asked by Ashley Snell to play at this Festival after we played a show with Indy’s Shadeland in March 2013. We couldn’t think of a better cause to be raising money for. No child or adult should ever have to miss out on all the sounds that we take for granted. I hope you will help us spread the word about this Festival.
