Vermont musicians stage COVID-19 relief benefit concert

Saturday, April 11 at 7 p.m.— Molly Gray will host a concert to bring music to Vermont families at home and to benefit Vermont COVID-19 relief efforts. The concert will include performances from artists hailing from around Vermont, including Noah Kahan of Strafford, Caitlin Canty of West Rutland, Pete Bernhard of the Devil Makes Three of Putney, Patrick Ross of Newbury and Bow Thayer of Stockbridge.

Vermonters will be able to enjoy the family-friendly concert from home for free, through the campaign’s YouTube channel and Facebook page from 7 – 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11. The concert will also be made available for local media and community groups to stream for free.

Viewers tuning in live will receive messages of hope and support along with music from the performing artists, and be encouraged to make donations in lieu of admission to the Vermont Foodbank’s COVID-19 Hunger Relief Fund. Viewers will be able to contribute by phone or online as they enjoy the concert.

“Through thick and thin Vermonters have a tradition of coming together to support each other. This concert is about bringing Vermont’s musicians together to give Vermont families an evening of beautiful music, entertainment and hope. The concert is also intended to help raise money for the critical relief efforts of the Vermont Foodbank.” Gray said.

“In this time of crisis many of us, some for the first time, might need to ask for help,” said Vermont Foodbank CEO John Sayles. “The Foodbank is here today, getting food and supplies to people who need it, and we’ll be here as long as there is a need. If you need help, reach out. Call 211 or visit vtfoodbank.org. If you can help, reach out too. It is an immense task, and we wouldn’t stand a chance if not for the support of our community.”
