Local musicians plan concert to benefit New London homeless shelter

New London — Several of southeastern Connecticut’s best musicians have signed on for a unique performance in October to benefit the New London Homeless Hospitality Center.

An Oct. 10 concert titled “Don’t Pass the Guitar” will be held in person at the Hygienic Art Park, 79 Bank St., for a small, socially distanced audience limited to 50 people. Masks are required. The concert will be livestreamed on social media for those who wish to watch from home.

“Don’t Pass the Guitar” starts at 6 p.m. and will be performed “bluegrass style.” It is being organized by Hugh Birdsall and the Homeless Hospitality Center. Spindrift Guitars is donating a guitar to be auctioned at the event.

Tickets are available from the Hygienic by calling (860) 443-8001. A suggested donation of $25 per person will benefit NLHHC, which provides hospitality and a bridge to permanent housing for adults experiencing homelessness in southeastern Connecticut.

Performers include: Ben & Nancy Parent, Steve Elci, Dogbite, Jim Carpenter, The Carolans, Woody, Dirt Road Radio, Braiden Sunshine, Anne Castellano, Daphne Lee Martin, Sandy Allen, Josi Davis, Baird Welch-Collins, Patrick Kirker, David Horst, Kala Farnham and Anna May Thompson.
