Mo’ Town Benefit Concert – November 17

Colorado bluesman Mo’ Kauffey moved to Guelph 15 years ago, and since then he’s become a stalwart of the Guelph music scene, and a perfect example of what a local music scene should be all about. Local musicians getting out there and sharing their musical gifts with the community as often as possible. Well, unfortunately Mo’ has been diagnosed with cancer. And for that reason all of his friends – and they are legion, are getting together to raise money so that Mo’ can get access to the best treatments available, in Canada – and beyond. Join the Mo’ Town team for a very special fundraiser on Tuesday November 17 at the Royal Electric Bar & Public Eatery.

Gathering Sparks, the wonderful new trio featuring Eve Goldberg, Jane Lewis, and Sam Turton will be appearing at Cafe Pyrus in Kitchener ON on Thursday October 23 at 7:30 p.m. Gathering Sparks embrace blues, gospel, folk, and pop while delivering engaging songs on acoustic and slide guitar, piano, accordion, ukulele, and banjo. Their debut 6-song CD, released in April 2014, has just been nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for “Vocal Group of the Year”.

The cover is $6-10 (sliding scale) and the opening set will be by Glenn Chatten. Music: Gathering Sparks, “I Ain’t Finished With This Journey Yet’ from Gathering Sparks (2014, Self).
