A concert to benefit Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and help stop gun violence will be held at 1 p.m. on Feb. 2, at the Towne Crier Café in Beacon.
This music festival will be filled with songs of remembrance and resolve, and feature Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary). Yarrow’s talent is legendary as an artist and activist — his gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs Peter, Paul & Mary have recorded, including Puff, The Magic Dragon and Day Is Done. His musical creativity has always gone hand in hand with his commitment to social justice and equity.
The concert will also feature local musicians Motherlode Trio, Carla Springer, The Lonely and Hope Machine with Fred Gillen, Steve Kirkman, Matt Turk and Susan Wright.
The Towne Crier Café is located at 379 Main St., Beacon. All proceeds will benefit the grassroots organization, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to change laws regarding drunk driving, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was created to build support for common-sense gun reforms.
