Ted and Mathew Gordon are doing a Benefit for Wet Nose Rescue along with our new good buddy Andy Lemmon....The Milkbone Trio plays originals and bluegrass, rock, country, and folk favorites on acoustic instruments including fiddle, guitar and dobro. The band features top local and national veteran performers, including: Andy Lemmon (funky jam-master guitarist from local rock band The Great Endangered); Ted The Fiddler (a former featured performer at Opryland USA in Tennessee who has played and recorded with greats such as John Hartford and Tom Rush); and Matthew Gordon (co-founder of country-bluegrass-folk-pop band The Barn Swallows, and frequent dobro sideman to Ronstadt Generations, Sarah & The Arrows, Gratefolk, and Mr Fuzzy & The Barbarian). Together they have joined forces to play an irresistible mixture of fun, toe-tapping music for music-lovers in the whole family.
The event will be both inside and out. There is a large Barn at this location which has electric, air and heat plus bathrooms and water (and a stage). There will be fine art and craft vendors, demonstrations by local artists, poetry reading, a sidewalk chalk contest with prizes,raffles, tour of the artists studios and classrooms and music.
Wet Nose Rescue will be there with some dogs that are up for adoption. All proceeds after expenses will go to this organization which uses foster homes instead of a shelter to house their dogs while waiting to be adopted. They will also be collecting pet food. Any pet food not needed by this organization will be donated to local food banks.
