WILLIAMSTOWN – Sweetwood of Williamstown Retirement Living Community will be hosting a concert to benefit those affected by the flooding at the Spruces Mobile Home Park caused by tropical storm Irene.
Thursday, September 8th, the performances begin at 5 p.m., and will include Berkshire County-based band Blueberry Buckle Trio, singer-songwriter Jack Waldheim and others at Sweetwood of Williamstown, 1611 Cold Spring Road. Those attending will be asked for a suggested donation of $10, however, any amount will be accepted for this benefit concert.
“The Williamstown community is stepping-up to support those who have been impacted by Irene, and Sweetwood is no exception,” said Executive Director John Krol. “In addition to working to provide temporary living arrangements for some of those left without a home, we’re hopeful that Sweetwood can serve as a venue to support our neighbors in need. We encourage everyone to come out to this event.”
Blueberry Buckle, formerly known as the Byrne Trio, is composed of Tom Byrne on guitar, bass, and the occasional wind instrument, and his two young daughters, Cate on violin and Savannah on drums, performing a mix of classical, fiddle and pop. Together, they have played dozens of shows at a variety of venues and events including The Readsboro Arts Festival, North Adams Co-operative Art Gallery, Petrino’s Café, St. Anne’s Lawn Party, fundraisers for MCLA and United Way, The Lenox Apple Squeeze, Pittsfield’s Third Thursdays, the Berkshires Art Festival and Williamstown’s Sundays at Six.
Jack Waldheim is a singer-songwriter whose alt-country style has made him a popular performer in venues throughout the Berkshires and beyond. Jacks’s most recent album On Second Thought includes some of his most popular original songs, ranging from touching country ballads to foot-stomping rock n’ roll.
