Rock and soul sunday...
Today is our Rock and Soul concert @ 3 pm: it will be a full day and we'll all be wasted at the end, but also grateful. Here's the invitation our mission partner, BEAT, has been sending out.
Here's a link that was published locally yesterday about the 10th Anniversary of BEAT: it is a concise and clear overview of BEAT's work in the community to day and why it is important to support them.

And, of course, here's the poster Di created for our concert at 3 pm. We're doing all kinds of music from acoustic folk to brash Janis Joplin rock and soul. After all, it IS the 45th anniversary of Woodstock. The first set will be gentle and introspective - tunes by the Indigo Girls, Joni Mitchell, Linda Worster, Nora Jones, Weez McCarty and CSNY - that will close with the Wailin' Jennys'
"One Voice." Our guest and founder of BEAT, Jane Winn, will bring brief greetings before set two - and then the ruckus begins. We've got Creedence, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin along with the Doobie Brothers, Thelonious Monk, Les McCann and Eddie Harris, too. So come on out for the fun if you are in town.
