Chattanooga, Tenn. — A benefit concert for Butch Baldassari will be held at the Barking Legs Theater in Chattanooga on August 2, 2008.

Concert organizers are still finalizing performers but have confirmed appearances by Norman Blake, fiddle great Barbara Lamb, Fletcher Bright & The Dismembered Tennesseans, and Lou Wamp & Swing Shift. Additional performers are expected to be announced in the next few days and will be added to this news release as they are made available.

Tickets are $20 in advance and at the door. Barking Legs Theater is located at 1307 Dodds Ave., Chattanooga, Tennessee at the base of Missionary Ridge.
