Hi!,
Here is a quick reminder about an important event that will take place next Friday and Saturday. Please feel free to forward it to anyone you know who may be interested...

We are putting on a fundraiser to benefit Brian Klempp and Tom Morrow, two of the area's best drummers and great friends of the music community who are battling cancer. The event will be called "The Healing Community." It will feature live music, projected video, poetry, and food. The performances will be completely different from one night to the next so feel free to come to both shows!

What: "The Healing Community"
This event will feature an extensive line-up of established performers with backgrounds in world and folk music. It will include traditional music from India, China, Thailand, and Ghana, as well as Native American music and folk music from the heart of America! There will also be poetry and projected video woven into the evening. Not only that, there will be food!
