On Sunday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Hooker Dunham Theater, singer, song-writer, multi-instrumentalist, and social activist Mark Erelli will return to Brattleboro to perform a Youth Services fundraising concert to support a housing push for homeless youth.
Erelli has performed in Brattleboro numerous times in the past, usually to sold-out audiences at the Hooker Dunham Theater. According to the singer, his music is hard to classify, but reveals the influences of folk, blue grass, rock, blues and country.
Local folk musician and educator, Ron Bos-Lun will open the show with a short set.
Youth Services has been working to address the issue of homelessness among the youth population the past two decades, according to Allyson Villars, Executive Director of Youth Services.
Many area youth are couch surfing, living in places unfit for human habitation, or in unstable or unhealthy situations-not because of something they did themselves but because of circumstances beyond their control.
The concert is sponsored by Crispe & Crispe Law Firm in Brattleboro. Tickets are available at Turn it Up! in Brattleboro, and at Youth Services' office at 32 Walnut Street in Brattleboro. Tickets purchased in advance are $18 General Admission, $16 Senior/Students. For more information contact Youth Services at 257-0361 or firstname.lastname@example.org
