Steve Earle And City Winery Announce Eighth Annual John Henry’s Friends Benefit Concert
The show is set for December 19 at The Town Hall in New York City.
Raising awareness for autism, Steve Earle and City Winery have announced the 8th Annual John Henry’s Friends Benefit Concert on December 19 at The Town Hall in New York City.
This year’s eclectic lineup notably boasts performances by Steve Earle, David Byrne, Terry Allen, and Matt Savage and The Mastersons.
VIP packages will be available at City Winery ($300-$8,500) and will include Town Hall’s orchestra seating, as well as admission to the After Party at City Winery immediately following the show and various experiences with Steve including a private dinner. There is a limited number of these packages being sold. Additionally, and keeping with the annual tradition, on December 17, the City Winery’s Loft will be hosting the live rehearsal show which will feature Steve Earle solo. All net proceeds will be going to the school as well.
Packages are limited and on sale now at City Winery’s official website. General admission tickets go on sale to the public tomorrow, Friday October 21, at 12 PM.
Most importantly, all proceeds will support the show’s longtime partner The Keswell School, an educational program for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Founded on the belief that children diagnosed with ASD can live full and productive lives as integrated members of their communities, The Keswell School provides educational, therapeutic, and supportive services for children diagnosed with ASD and their families.
Last year’s installment drew widespread critical applause. Forbes raved, “The show returned in the biggest way possible,” going on to affirm, “It’s stunning to see what happens when love, talent, and hunger combine in a small space.”
The John Henry’s Friends Benefit Concert has previously hosted Bruce Springsteen, Rosanne Cash, Willie Nile, Graham Nash, Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Josh Ritter, and Amanda Shires, among others.
