Music that Matters

Folk Fest

featuring Mark & Sally Wingate, Paul Brown and Terri McMurray
Sunday, May 21, 1:30pm

Please join us on May 21st for our final Music that Matters concert of the season, with Mark & Sally Wingate and Paul Brown & Terri McMurray. These husband-and-wife teams bring a fun, engaging show packed with traditional songs, instrumentals and good-humored mostly-true stories. Songs for the May concert will be from the bluegrass and early country music traditions, as well as some original fiddle tunes.

Donations received today will benefit The Next Chapter Book Club (NCBC), a program of the Piedmont Down Syndrome Support Network. NCBC is committed to promoting literacy and social connection experiences for adolescents and adults with intellectual disabilities that encourage friendship and lifelong learning within a community-based setting. A group of 5-8 people with intellectual disabilities, regardless of their reading skills, gather with volunteer facilitators in a local bookstore, coffee shop, or cafe to read aloud and discuss a book for one hour a week.

We will start the program at 1:00 with vignettes performed by members of a local Next Chapter Book Club. The music portion of the program will start at 1:30. No tickets for this concert but rather we will collect donations during the program.
