-- Samantha Crain had her life blood, a Martin 00-15 and a Fender Jagstang (both with cases), stolen right from underneath her on November 16th. Crain, featured in Rolling Stone's 2010 Essential Sets listing for Bonnaroo, never expected to be the victim of such a crime and is asking for the public's help to recover the missing merchandise;
offering a reward on her local Craigslist.
Many supporters of Crain have asked her to set up a donation site so that they can assist her financially in the purchase of new instruments, and while thankful, the original guitars hold many memories and a sentimental value that can not be replaced. One fan said that Crain's music had "touched me so much that it only seems fair to help her now. Crain's music needs to be heard by the world and how is she supposed to do that without a guitar?"
Crain has created the donation website www.donatesamanthacrain.blogspot.com where those so inclined can offer monetary support to the singer/songwriter and post comments.
