Three area a cappella groups will perform a benefit concert, "Gimme Shelter," for Groundworks Collaborative on Saturday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hooker-Dunham Theatre, 139 Main St., Brattleboro. Groundworks is a merger of Brattleboro Area Drop In Center and Morningside Shelter. They offer the second largest food shelf in Vermont and a 30-bed shelter, as well as a seasonal shelter from November through April, a day shelter, and a youth shelter in Bellows Falls.
The three vocal groups are House Blend Big Woods Voices, and Singcrony Trio. House Blend, formed in 2006, is an assembly of 20 veteran singers from Vermont and New Hampshire, devoted to the collective exploration of the many styles of a cappella songs from around the world. Tickets are at the door, with a $10-$20 and up donation suggested. All proceeds will go to Groundworks programs to provide food and shelter to area families and individuals who are facing insecurities.
