On the first Friday of the month (usually), September through June, we present some of the finest acoustic musicians on the circuit in a substance free, family friendly venue with killer sound and a great vibe.
Songs on a Midwinter's Night
Fundraiser for The Unity Shoppe
Friday, December 6, 2019
Our December concert - Songs on a Midwinter’s Night - is a special one. In this season, marked by celebration in so many traditions, we strive to underscore the connections we all have with one another, the responsibility of art and music to make the world a better place, and to build a sense of community together. We feature primarily local performers and rather than charge for admission, we ask the audience make a donation to the Unity Shoppe. The performers donate their time and talent.
The Unity Shoppe serves more than 22,000 people a year distributing over $2 million in merchandise to our neighbors in need. Over 70,000 visits are made yearly by low-income families, children, the elderly, and the disabled, most of whom are referred by over 300 other non-profit organizations, social service agencies, churches, and hospitals. This collaboration prevents duplication of services and people being served by multiple places. People in need can rely on a consistent facility where they can receive a fair allotment of better merchandise year-round. The free clothing and grocery store allows clients to shop with dignity for the things they need and prevents wasteful handouts that may not be needed or wanted.
This year has been difficult for The Unity Shoppe as the needs generated by the fire and mudslides last year completely drained their resources to the point that they had to close their doors for a while this fall. We are thrilled to be able to contribute in this way to this important service in our community. Learn more about the Unity Shoppe at https://www.unityshoppe.org/
In previous years we’ve showcased 6 or 7 performers. This year we’re changing the format a little and presenting three outstanding acts - Dennis Russell and Laura Hemenway, touring singer/songwriter Jen Hajj, and local legend Cyrus Clarke, each doing a ½ hour set.
The venue is the Cambridge Drive Community Church, 550 Cambridge Drive, Goleta, CA 93117. Tickets are $15 with advance reservation and $18 at the door. Call 805 964-0436 for reservations.
Remember... we present on the first Friday of the month, September through June. You'll want to put the dates on your calendar and see every one of these amazing acts!
