Concert Will Benefit the Cancer Patient Support Program
Robert Burnetti, General Manager of the Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center, recently announced the 9th Annual “Cabin Fever Reliever 2011” annual benefit to raise money for the Cancer Patient Support Program. The benefit is scheduled for Saturday, March 26, and money raised will provide support to cancer patients and their families in financial crisis situations. This year’s benefit is dedicated to Marci Kearney, wife of Cow Island Music owner Bill Hunt. Marci lost her life in a motor scooter accident last July.
Perennial sell-out performer Bill Kirchen, dubbed by Guitar Magazine as the “Titan of the Telecaster,” will perform again, this time backed for the first time in Vermont by his Washington DC-based band Too Much Fun.
Kirchen gained renown as a founder, lead guitarist and vocalist for country-rockers Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen.
Fan favorite and high-energy honky-tonk band the Starline Rhythm Boys will also perform. Li’l Mo & The Monicats, a high-energy NYC-based group, and LeRoy Preston, the prolific songwriter and founding member of Asleep at the Wheel. will also be performing.
The event will be held in the Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center’s Emerald Grand Ballroom at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $18 and are available online at www.flynntix.org or by calling 802-863-5966.
