The Southcoasters rousing rhythms and close harmony will take you back to the 1960's, a time when Folk Music was king. Once touted as one of the best folk groups in America with several hit records to their credit,they were in high demand and performed on the same bill with noted legends like Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, Brenda Lee, Bobby Bare, The Rum Runners, Kay Oslen and Guy Clarke. They have come out of retirement to bring you the 'Encore Collection' of folk and contemporary classics. You're not just buying some music you like to hear when you buy a Southcoaster CD. You're helping to find a cure for cancer. The Southcoasters are donating a minimum of 50% of the net proceeds from sales of the Encore Collection to The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. This money is being used to fund research at M. D. Anderson specifically for breast cancer and prostate cancer. At M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, their mission is simple - to eliminate cancer. The 21st century technology is giving rise to the exploding field of genomics. In the future, it should be possible to use molecular level knowledge to design individual treatments for each patients cancer as well as to intervene before many people ever develop the disease. Thus far, almost $10,000.00 has been contributed to M. D. Anderson from Encore 1.0 sales. So why not buy a copy and help kill a cancer?
