With January being Cervical Cancer Month, The Yellow Umbrella Tour promises to provide audiences with a unique listening experience featuring local musicians, as well as health information that women can use to protect themselves from cervical cancer. The tour was founded in 2002 by Christine Baze, a Boston-based singer/songwriter, who was diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer in 2000 just as her musical career was taking off. She has become a vocal activist for raising awareness of cervical cancer and opportunities to prevent the deadly disease. Maze founded the non-profit organization The Yellow Umbrella.org and launched The Yellow Umbrella Tour. The Boston show will be the 99th stop since its inception. Show #100 will take place on Thursday at the Gulu Gulu Cafe in Salem with Chris Keating, Corolla DeVille, Sea Monsters, Qwill, and Baze. Baze also recently released a new album, Ever Changing Colors.
