Benefit Concert Saturday, March 4
Please join Shades Mountain Air, Drexel Rayford and Friends and Southern Harmony for a night of music in the warm, comfortable listening venue of Moonlight on the Mountain. Get a good taste of Bluegrass, Gospel, Folk, Barbershop and other musical styles in this well-known Birmingham acoustic venue.
The event is a benefit for Cognitive Dynamics, and proceeds will go to support the 501c3 foundation’s programs that improve quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers through the arts and storytelling (for more information, please see http://www.cognitivedynamics.org/).
The cost of admission is $20, CASH ONLY. Please bring your own food and drink (except coffee), and arrive early to get a good seat (doors open at 7 pm)
For more information, please see Moonlight on the Mountain’s website athttp://www.moonlightonthemtn.com/index.html
Last year our band played for one of the Foundation’s programs. People with cognitive issues–dementia, alzheimers and other issues–were painting, drawing, and then sang old songs they loved with us. It was astounding. The arts are a gift of God for everyone, and perhaps the most loving grace for that time in life when many other activities are no longer available to us.
I hope you’ll come out, support the cause, and have a great time. Hey, don’t sit home waiting on the next Tweet. Get on out here and have fun!
