The Edge Helps Launch New Music Rising at Tulane Website

@U2, April 24, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

The Edge appeared via video Tuesday during the launch of Music Rising at Tulane, a new website that helps preserve the musical traditions of the Gulf Coast area and educate the public about them, too. In a news release announcing Tuesday's event, Edge had this to say about the project:

Out of this partnership we were able to create a program which fosters national and international study through the work of K-12 educators and university scholars. I hope that this is only the beginning of an opportunity to provide future generations of students a chance to experience the colorful and dynamic musical history from this very special part of the world.

And here's the video that played during the launch event. We don't know how recently Edge taped his comments.

The Edge launched Music Rising with producer Bob Ezrin in 2005 to help New Orleans-area musicians after Hurricane Katrina. The organization has since expanded its focus on helping musicians around the country in the wake of natural disasters.
