concert will raise funds for The Shalom Project in NC.
By Blurt Staff
On December 4th Jeffrey Dean Foster and the Birds
of Prey will host the 5th Annual Million Star Hotel benefit
concert for the Shalom Project at The Garage in Winston-Salem, NC.
Foster, of course, is a Tarheel rock ‘n’ roll mainstay and BLURT fave – you can
read a little about a concert we caught featuring him on the bill this summer
Opening the show will
be Aaron Bachelder, known to many as the musical director of the Enrichment
Center Percussion Ensemble. Next up will be Lynn Blakey. Lynn is one third of the critically acclaimed
Tres Chicas and will be appearing with her husband Ecki Heinz. She has sang
on Jeffrey Dean Foster’s 2005 album Million Star Hotel and
The Pinetops’ Above Ground and Vertical as well as records by
Alejandro Excovedo, Velvet Crush and The Two Dollar Pistols.
All proceeds will go to The Shalom Project, a local
nonprofit organization that seeks to develop ministries and programs of
compassion and justice that enhance the development and serve the needs of West
Salem and the greater Winston-Salem
area. The Shalom Project operates a food
pantry, clothes closet, free health clinic, Wednesday night suppers and after
school programs in the West Salem Neighborhood.
