Pulling For The Pantry
The Barn (EGRE-003-0437, South Egremont, MA , South Egremont MA)
An evening of rockin’ and swingin’ music at The Egremont Barn in South Egremont featuring The BTU’s, Misty Blues, Rees Shad & The Conversations, and special guests Wanda Houston & Tyler Fairbank.
The People’s Pantry of Great Barrington has been fighting food insecurity in South County for 23 years and in recent years demand has skyrocketed for their services. The Pantry has recently embarked on a $300,000 fundraiser to meet this year’s projected operating costs in the midst of a continuing surge in client numbers and increased expenses. The musicians coming together on the 22nd all recognize the role the Pantry plays in our community and have signed up to Pull for the Pantry. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the People’s Pantry.
The Evening’s lineup:
Misty Blues offers up a sweet mix of jazz, blues, funk, & Cajun music that is tight and infectious. Headed up by singer and songstress Gina Coleman the band has been described as a consummate club act at the top of their game, and they are NOT to be missed!
