Cancer strikes the young and the old, always seemingly unexpectedly, but one community in Middle Tennessee is coming out in force to show their support. A day long benefit concert is planned for Saturday, May 19 along the Harpeth River in downtown Kingston Springs that will feature the best garage bands in the area and promising emerging bands in middle TN. Nashville is known for talented musicians and songwriters that are equal to any in the world, and on Saturday, May 19 multiple bands will take the stage to support this worthy cause.
Spokesperson, Leslie Allen says, “Kingston Springs is an incredibly close knit community full of talented people that have a huge heart. Our community is quick to respond to people that are in need. The music planned for the 19th will be worthy of any songwriter/band showcase.”
There are five people that will benefit from the day-long event that will include music of most every genre: blues, Americana, Folk, Rock, Latin and Bluegrass. The owners of the Red Tree coffee house, Amy Bruce and Katie Conley, are planning the music lineup. Burgers and Bar-b-que will be available from this riverside venue throughout the day. The cost is $10 per person. Kids 12 and under are free.
The event is being hosted by a committee of local friends that would like to provide funds for cancer relief for people that are diagnosed with late stage cancer. Those benefiting from the event include: Sue Hasse, Cheslie Wilson, Jeremy Hinton, Jackie Linder and others that have direct ties to the community.
Wrist bands are being sold at local businesses for $10 for all day access to the event located at Liles River Bottom. For more information, visit the Facebook community page – Harpeth Springaroo. An account has been set up at Community Bank & Trust for financial donations. Silent auction donations may be dropped off at Heritage Bank in Kingston Springs.
The event begins at 10 a.m. and will conclude at 6:00 p.m. For more information or to volunteer, contact Leslie Allen at 615-378-1198, or email Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
