Saturday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m.—WHITE RIVER JCT—The Briggs Opera House in White River Junction will be filled with music from singer-songwriter Brooks Hubbard at a special benefit concert on Saturday, March 18. The event supports Good Neighbor Health Clinic/Red Logan Dental Clinic.
“We’re excited to bring this great event to the Upper Valley,” said Heather Grohbrugge, interim director at Good Neighbor Health Clinics. “Brooks is indeed a local treasure and all proceeds from the show will directly benefit the patients served by the Good Neighbor Health Clinic and the Red Logan Dental Clinic.”
A New Hampshire native raised in Enfield, Hubbard’s first musical performance was as a 3rd grader playing the drums at a show with his father’s band. By high school, he was writing and performing his own music. He continued to pursue his love of music and upon graduation from Keene State College, decided to make his passion a full-time job. During a career that has taken him to Nashville and now back to the Upper Valley, Hubbard has collaborated with band members from artists James Taylor and Jackson Browne and opened for acts including KT Tunstall, Robert Cray, and Reckless Kelly, just to name a few.
Good Neighbor volunteer physician Adam Sorscher, who will serve as emcee at the concert, said the event will be a great way to enjoy local music and support an enduring non-profit. “Having been part of the Good Neighbor ‘family’ for several years as a volunteer provider, I have seen first-hand the positive impact of the medical and dental clinics on those in need.”
“This is a wonderful organization that plays a critical role in the region’s safety net,” Sorscher added.
According to event organizer Hilde Ojibway, “The event puts two of my favorites in the spotlight: the original songs of Brooks Hubbard and the outstanding work of Good Neighbor.”
Hubbard will be performing original songs, including new songs which will be released on an upcoming album later this year. His poignant and clear insights about people and places ring through the lyrics with his strong voice carrying the stories straight to your heart. Concert goers will also hear a father-son collaboration, as engaging musician Gary Hubbard, will join Brooks on stage for a few songs.
Advance tickets for the concert cost $25 and can be ordered at: Brownpapertickets.com/event/5722473. Tickets purchased at the door will be $30.
