Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Friday, September 23, 7pm, Dewey Hall, 91 Main Street, Sheffield, MA 01257 No cover. Donations appreciated, via cash, check, or online Berkshire County’s favorite rock-jazz-blues-funk band will entertain and delight! The BTUs are a Berkshire institution, led by guitarist Steve Ide and also includes Bob McVeety on guitar and vocals, Rob Putnam on bass and Conor Meehan on drums. Come on in and get your groove on! Great dancing music. When Colfax Farm lost its lease in 2021 it highlighted the land insecurity faced by many Berkshire farmers who are essential to shaping a resilient local food system in a time of climate change. The Harry Conklin Fund for Farmsteads was formed in response. Through community donations, the fund acquires farmland to lease to a local farmer for growing and housing. The first leaseholder will be Molly Comstock of Colfax Farms. Donations made at this concert will go directly to help save Berkshire farmland and find a new home for Molly Comstock and Colfax Farm. Next in the Harry Conklin Fund For Farmsteads concert and event series. October 16 2pm-5pm Lukas Schwartz & Friends at The Schumacher Center Cider Pressing A special thanks to Dan Levinson of Main Street Resources for sponsoring the series.
