Cancer Outreach Foundation's 1st Annual Music for Hope Concert at the Bristol Train Station

October 19, 2013 | 12 am

The Cancer Outreach Foundation is pleased to announce the 1st Annual Music for Hope Concert on Saturday, October 19 at 7pm at the historic Bristol Train Station in Bristol, Virginia.

Jerry Castle and If Birds Could Fly will perform in what promises to be a fun-filled night of music while we raise money to support cancer patients living among us in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee.

Jerry Castle is an American singer-songwriter from the small Appalachian Mountain town of Abingdon, Virginia. He’s completely crazy and completely sane, funny but tormented. He’s a whole lot a rock-n-roll wrapped in a whole lot a country. Castle, a 14-year resident of Nashville, TN, has become best known for his country-rock songwriting about heartbreak, hard living, and lessons learned from a colorful life both at home and on the road. He still believes that songwriting should be magical, not contrived and his forthcoming 2013 release, 'Desperate Parade', is a perfect manifestation of that theory. To check out more about him, go to www.jerrycastle.com.

If Birds Could Fly is an Appalachian folk band who brings a new take on Appalachian folk and classic Americana. They hail from Southwest Virginia and bring their roots of old country and ghostly melodies to a new and refreshing stage with a blend of many different genres, so that there is something everyone can enjoy when hearing If Birds Could Fly. From soothing guitar melodies to the vocal chills, this act promises to deliver a sound truly from their heart to those willing to listen.
