Danny and Barb 'give back'

CANTON – Everyone is invited to join singer/songwriters Barb Heller and Danny Gotham at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton, East Main Street, on Saturday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. for another of their popular holiday benefit concerts.

The suggested donation for this evening of seasonal songs and other favorites is $5 per adult, no charge for children.

Danny Gotham, a North Country native, is an award-winning guitarist who lives and works in North Carolina, where he performs with the jazz-pop band Cool Shooz and the acoustic ensemble Stringfellows. He’s also fondly remembered as part of a local trio, the Raquette River Rounders, and rock quartet Johnny and the Trumphs.

Barb Heller is the longtime host of North Country Public Radio’s popular “String Fever” show and has performed all over our region.

Danny and Barb have released a number of recordings, together and separately, which will be on sale during the concert intermission.

Proceeds will benefit the CORC Thrift Store in Potsdam. Operated by the Council of Religious Concern, with representatives from 11 area religious institutions, the CORC store has sold quality used clothing and housewares and offered vouchers to those with emergency needs for over 30 years.
