I got a call from my buddy in West Virginia Noah Bowles last Friday
to help him cover this event for his band The Backwoods Butchers.
Mr. Noah is a GREAT supporter of Garyhayescountry.com and is always
willing to put a word out for me because I’m always willing to help
the bands and venues. It’s what I do!
Next Saturday March 29th in Summers County Memorial Building
in Hinton West Virginia the Backwoods Butchers will be involved
in their community for the Hinton Hope Foundation which is
an organization that is doing great things for the people and THAT
is what music and the music scene SHOULD BE all about..US!
When I found out they help narcotics anonymous I REALLY WANTED to
I will share with you some pieces from Facebook first:
–Teamwork: We’ve teamed up with a local organization called
ETHNÊ HOUSE, which also has similar goals and who has organized
a Nutrition 101 course and a Narcotics Anonymous. We hope to
work in tandem to expand some of their programs for the county.
We’ve also become the local Blueprint Community Team for the town.
Being a Blueprint Community team gives Hinton the advantage of grant opportunities and numerous amounts of development and support
organizations at our disposal. I.E. The West Virginia USDA Rural Development,
West Virginia Office of Healthy Lifestyles, WV Department of Environmental Protection & WVU Extension Service.
The Hinton Hope Foundation is actively fundraising to upgrade the Summers County Memorial Building Auditorium to better function as an Arts and Entertainment Venue. These upgrades will help us to expand our abilities to provide Music and Performing Arts Programs in Summers County. The Hinton Hope Foundation in conjunction with the Summers County Commission and others are working together to secure grants and funding matches to achieve these goals for the citizens and especially the youth of Summers County.
Folks I think We ALL should actively support the bands involved!
They will be:
Jacob Woodrum Band,
Nick Bennett & Taran McKinney (Other Brothers),
Chosen Generation Bluegrass
New Horizon Bluegrass for the Soul
The Backwoods Butchers.
