A fundraiser concert and silent for Family Promise of Grant County will be held at First English Lutheran Church, 215 W. Pine St., Platteville, Sunday, April 17.
A free lunch with a freewill donation will be held at 12:30 p.m. Bidding for the silent auction will begin at 12:30 p.m.
David Francey and his band and Ira Wolf will perform a concert starting at 3 p.m.
Francey is a Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter, who has been called “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers” by the Toronto Star. Francey moved to Canada when he was 12. In concert, he is a singer and a storyteller who can establish, in minutes, a personal rapport with his audience. His wry humor and astute observations combined with his openhearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.
Hailing from the mountains of Montana, Wolf’s captivating voice, honest lyrics, and authentic new-folk melodies are hard to ignore in Nashville’s folk community. Wolf has performed on stages across the U.S., parts of Europe, and Southeast Asia since she began touring in 2014. She has roots in Irish/Celtic folk, country–western and bluegrass genres.
