Artists’ Prized Instruments Damaged in Flood Play Second Role in Supporting Nashville's Flood Recovery


NASH2O is a charitable initiative to raise money from the damaged instruments, equipment, and other items and services to benefit musicians and in the greater Nashville music community, many of whom were uninsured for flooding, with a portion also going to greater Nashville fire and rescue departments in need of equipment. This effort is being spearheaded by luthier Joe Glaser, George Gruhn, and musician Bruce Bouton, with help from many others. Most pieces were flood damaged and have been decontaminated (and certified for safety). Some items were never touched by the water but have been donated specifically for this fundraising effort, such as special editions offered as sweepstakes prizes.
