Concerts raise $8K for food bank so far
So far, more than $8,000 has been raised — Angie Robson, manager of corporate affairs at Vale, said this figure is “a real testament to how generous our community is.”
On Aug. 15, the concert series returns with a show by country guitarist Wendell Ferguson and folk artist Katherine Wheatley.
“We hope to see many residents of our community come out on Wednesday an enjoy a great night of music for a great cause,” Robson said.
“Wendell and Wheat,” as they are charmingly referenced, are coming to the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre at Bell Park for a 7 p.m. show as part of a northern tour.
“Together, they make magic every night on stage,” a media release from the duo stated. “The personalities of these two very distinctive individuals coming together and supporting each others' music and banter leads to a warm, entertaining and often outrageous show.”
Ferguson, a six-time CCMA guitar player of the year, wows crowds with his instrument and witty antics.
“He tried to do comedy once, but they all laughed at him,” the media release stated.
Wheatley, on the other hand, touches on a more serious note with her “warm, sonorous voice.”
To catch the show, stop by the amphitheatre. Donations to the Sudbury Food Bank are welcome at the gate.
The final show in the series features Murray McLauchlan and Cindy Church at the amphitheatre Sept. 12.
