March 18, 2011
A tribute concert celebrating the musical legacy of Allun Cormier. This past December, a tragic house fire ended the life of the incredibly talented songwriter and guitarist whose writing and musical ability became the watermark for regional musicians. While the complete line-up of participants has yet to be confirmed, several artists have already signed on...including famed New York cellist Dave Eggar, Sirius/XM radio host and country musician Roger Alan Wade, regional faves Clay Prewitt & These Undowners, as well as Allun's own band, Folk Soul Revival. Many other guests have been invited, and the evening is sure to be jam packed full of artists and musicians whose love for Allun can only be outweighed by his love for music. $20 reserved seating.
