COMMUNITY /// Michiganders Seth Bernard and May Erlewine – who comprise the folk duo Seth and May, as well as their own solo acts – are green-minded do-gooders aside from their tuneful talents. Currently the pair is work- ing on their philanthropic endeavor with Project Ethiopia, taking part in a cultural and musical exchange initiative. During their trip to the impoverished region, they will interact with the community, shar- ing music and gaining inspiration to put together an album about their experience. The initiative is to help fund a project that will be taking place from Jan. 8-20. During that time, eight sprinters will run 240 miles in three days to raise the necessary $100,000 to construct three schools in the area. Once the CD is recorded in Michigan, it will be distributed with half of the proceeds going fund the project, which is endorsed by On the Ground. On the Ground acts as the non-profit arm of Higher Grounds, a Michigan fair-trade coffee company in Traverse City. Pledge funds of $25 and you’ll receive the CD, $50 indicates a signed copy, a $100 pledge gets you the CD before it is officially released and do- nations of $250 or more gets you the CD in advance plus ten never-before-released songs by Seth and May.
