Changes to Outreach Benefit

Posted January 25, 2011 by Anthony Mariani in Blotch

As you first read about in HearSay, several talented Fort Worth artists will be performing on Sat., Feb. 5, at The Where House (2510 Hemphill St., South Side) as part of a show benefiting the Fort Worth Music Outreach, an organization that brings music education and instruments to Fort Worth school district students affected by cuts in arts education funding. Telegraph Canyon, Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Luke Wade & No Civilians, Ginny Mac, and Fort Worth/Brooklyn’s Oh Whitney are slated to perform. There have been some changes since that HearSay article, however. The cover charge is now $15, and the drinks are no longer free –– but you-call-its are only $2 a pop. Still, all proceeds will go toward the outreach project –– the group is currently seeking federal nonprofit status. Concertgoers also can bring used musical instruments to donate. Anyone who can’t make the show but is interested in donating an instrument (or money) can contact the organization via www.fortworthmusicoutreach.org and arrange a pickup time.
