We wanted to share an upcoming event being sponsored by our friends at the fabulous music venue White Horse Black Mountain. As many of you know, parts of northern Japan are coping with the effects of an 8.9 magnitude earthquake and devastating tsunami earlier this month. Akira Satake, an artist, musician and native of Japan who lives in Swannanoa (the charming little town next door to Black Mountain) along with the folks at White Horse Black Mountain, have organized a benefit concert set for Thursday, March 31, 2011, at 7pm, to help those who have been affected by this tragedy.
The benefit concerts headliners include Akira Satake along with Tony Trischka and Tim O’Brien, and local musicians Billy Cardine, Julia Weatherford and Duncan Wickel will be performing as well. All proceeds will go to GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.
