Michael Clem solo @ CROW SHOW (Benefit for neighborhood family, The Crows)
June 27 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On May 13, a lovely young family in my Charlottesville VA Key West neighborhood suffered a house fire. For more details about the ordeal and the family’s status, please visit the GoFundMe page set up for their aid.
In the meantime, another dear neighbor of mine, Patt Keats, has offered her ridge top home to team up with me and put on a benefit show for The Crows, she was also eager to help this family. I’ve already done two wonderful house concerts with Patt, and it’s a gorgeous venue. The first time was in her spacious living room with a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge. The second time was in her spacious driveway with ample shade for this time of day. This is where we will hold this show on June 27. You’ll need to bring your own folding chair.
One of my dearest musical chums of all time, Matty Metcalfe, also happens to be KeyWester. Many of you already know MM as THE go-to music teacher for all your kids (keys and strings), as well as being one of the busiest players in town (along with the hands-down nicest). We’ve joined forces in numerous acts during my 13 years in town, and on this occasion, the Tease with the Squeeze will join me for the greatest guitar-accordion pairing this side of Vincennes or Blueberry (those are Kdub streets for you outsiders).
We’re also excited to announce that my good pal Dave McNeal will bring his fabulous food truck Raclette On the Run. https://racletteontherun.com/?fbclid=IwAR15NE91301rn9Wbbi2t5Pdguxm43E7mpA-fvcfI5bLHV7QuwpqNN3-kHBE
As for donations, we’re obviously trying to raise as much as we can for the Good Family Crow. A normal house concert show will usually run at about $20 a head, so let’s set that as a minimum. Please don’t feel limited to that amount and give what you can. There will be a big ole bucket at the show for cash and checks, and if you’d like to Venmo or PayPal. You may use my accounts
Venmo – @Michael-Clem-4 OR PayPal – email@example.com
100% of all of these monies collected will go to the Crows.
