Come stitch for a good cause! Gather with fellow knitters and crocheters and create cold weather items such as hats, scarves, and mittens for the refugee clients of the Atlanta office of the International Rescue Committee. Don't know how to knit? Want to learn? One free lesson will get you started on a scarf to donate to the cause. Bring your own project materials — and extra to donate if you'd like!
As a special treat, Britt Dean and Clay Spurz of The Band of Desperate Men will be performing. The Band of Desperate Men cover the waterfront from Country, old-school Rock ‘n’ Roll, Bluegrass, and Blues with pure and simple harmony blended over originals and vintage classics.
Doors @ 3:30 PM
Warmth For All is a Portland-based organization dedicated to creating, collecting, and distributing cold weather items for persons in need. The newly-established Atlanta Chapter has committed to providing these items to international refugees being resettled in Georgia through the assistance of the International Rescue Committee.
Britt Dean, Doc Oster, and Clay Spurz are The Band of Desperate Men: pure and simple harmony blended over Clay’s originals and vintage classics. They cover the waterfront from Country, old-school Rock ‘n’ Roll, Bluegrass, and Blues to the only Chinese Doo-wop song in captivity. Then they throw in the Louvin Brothers, Wilson Pickett, The Marcels and Ink Spots, CS&N, Beatles, and other standards—all in their seamless trio sound. Buddy Miller, who worked with Britt and Clay back in the early days before becoming a Nashville artist and leader of Emmy Lou Harris’s band, recorded a number of Clay Spurz tunes. His version of Clay’s “Garage Sale” has been rereleased in a compilation on American Music, the High Tone Records Story, and James “the Bluegrass Storyteller” King brought out a bluegrass version of the song on Rounder Records.
