Local Event ~ Hot Blues for the Homeless (2009)

This is (at least) the third installment of this event [1] [2] ~ a worthy effort without doubt. It is part of an ongoing tribute to Rochester resident Son House with proceeds going to the Catholic Family Center's Francis Center shelter for the homeless. This year the line up includes a group of local musicians - most notably Joe Beard - and, from out of town, the inimitable John Hammond. The performances are scheduled for this Sunday, June 7th (4:00-9:00 pm) at Water Street Music Hall, located at 204 N. Water Street, Rochester. Tickets are available via the hot blues web page, ticketmaster, or at several local establishments - the Bop Shop, Abilene, Record Archive, and Mercury Posters. Advance concert tickets cost $15 or $20 at the door. Both the concert and a June 7 guitar workshop featuring Fred Vine costs $25.
