John Medeski + Billy Martin (Medeski & Martin) & Friends + Medicine Singers: Fundraiser for The Future Generations an Alliance For a Viable Future Benefit Concert
Sunday, August 7th 6PM (Doors 5PM)
Bombyx Center for Arts & Equity
130 Pine Street, Florence, MA
Tickets: https://bombyx.live/events/avf-benefit-concert/
The evening begins with a performance by Yonatan Gat (acclaimed guitarist from Monotonix) and the Medicine Singers, the revered drum group who sing in an Eastern Algonquin language indigenous to Massachusetts (the collaboration has spawned an album due out this July). A presentation will follow about the Alliance For a Viable Future, concluding with a special musical performance by John Medeski and Friends. The idea for the benefit was hatched this March when Medeski, an old friend of AVF founder Lev Natan, played Bombyx as a member of Club D’Elf and discovered our vintage pipe organ which will undoubtedly play a part in his performance.
*** Neftalí Duran, indigenous chef from the I-Collective, will also join the gathering with a Oaxacan-style taco pop-up from 5-7PM. ***
