I saw Carbon Leaf earlier this week, with a fun lineup with Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, along with Dawn Landes. I didn't take down a set list, because I've done that quite a few times already, but there is one part of the concert that I wanted to pass along to the greater internet population.

One of the new songs on their latest album, Nothing Rhymes With Woman, is called Pink. As Barry Privet prepared for the song, he related a story:

Along with some friends we've known who have struggled to overcome breast cancer, 'Pink' was inspired by the story of a fan of ours who developed breast cancer at a particularly young age. We were touched by her strength in documenting her own journey, and the amazing outpouring of support from her family, friends and community.

As a result, this week, the band has joined with The Breast Cancer Site and National Breat Cancer Foundation, and are offering their song, Pink, as a free download. To recieve the song, visit this link.

For each download of the song, Vanguard Records will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Please download the song. In fact, tell a friend and get them to do the same.
