Winnipeg folk and roots musicians will rally together this week to put on a benefit concert in support of a flooded-out Alberta guitar player.
Two-time Juno Award winner Amos Garrett of High River, Alberta had his hometown devastated with unyielding flood water in late June 2013. Garrett’s home, possessions and guitars, uninsurable to overland flooding, were all damaged in the flood.
On Thursday, August 15, Nathan Rogers, Dust Rhinos, Lindsay Jane and Al Simmons (guest MC) will put on a benefit event at the West End Cultural Centre.
“Amos-Behavin’, Benefit Concert for Amos Garrett” will begin at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7:15 p.m.
Tickets are $25 at the door or $20 in advance through the West End Cultural Centre, Ticketmaster, Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and Music Trader.
