Upper Room Gets Banjo Bucks
An astonishing pair of musicians performed an amazing concert and an equally generous gesture at the Stockbridge Theatre. Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn, husband-wife virtuosos in the claw hammer style of banjo, thrilled the audience and then representatives of The Upper Room.
Fleck and Washburn donated the proceeds of post-concert CD and merchandise sales to The Upper Room; nearly $500.00.
Pictured, L-R: Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn, performers; Katella and John Dulmage, The Upper Room.
Matt Cahoon, director of the Stockbridge Theatre, said “We’ve never seen an artist do this in our hall; it’s a very nice gesture.“
