• Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen in a Special Benefit Concert

    Frank Solivan and DIrty KitchenMorristown, N.J. — Grammy nominated and IBMA Award winning Bluegrass Band Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen will appear in a special concert fund-raiser for One World Woman's Health and Africa Surgery, Inc., both 501c3 nonprofit organizations whose goals are to provide health and surgical services to the people of Sierra Leone, West Africa.

    Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world, was ravaged by a prolonged civil war and recently was one of the hot beds of the Ebola outbreak.

    The concert will be held 8:00 p.m., Friday October 23, 2015 at Assumption Church, 91 Maple Avenue, Morristown, NJ 07960.

    General admission tickets are available for purchase online (see link below) or on the night of the concert at the venue from 7:00 to 7:45 p.m. for $35.00.

    Assumption church is an intimate venue, housed in a beautifully decorated American gothic church completed in 1873. The church was built by the Irish immigrants living in what was then the "Little Dublin" area of Morristown. The acoustics of the church are fantastic with warm rich tones in the well-aged wood and brick structure.

      Yeah. That would be a great show to see. They ought to stream it via Concert Window for extra exposure/donations. I don't know if Concert Window is set up for benefit shows, but I'll bet it would be easy to do.
