Harvest Song Is Saturday In Dalton

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Harvest Song, and evening of acoustic, American music, will return to Dalton again this year and will feature regional songwriters Noah Collins, Charlsey Ethridge, and David Crawford. The event will be held Saturday at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 101 Selvidge St. in the heart of Dalton. The proceeds will benefit the DEO Clinic, a non-profit medical clinic serving low income uninsured members of the community. 

“Last year the event was well received," said Tom Brown, event organizer. "There is a tremendous amount of musical talent in our region and it is a chance to hear songwriters perform their own creations. A lot of these songwriters are credentialed; they’ve won awards, have had their songs recorded, and have been out there performing.”

The writers will be sharing their songs and the stories and inspirations behind them. The event will be family friendly.

The concert will benefit the DEO Clinic which recently began its 14th year of service to the community. With 60 plus volunteers and part time staff, the clinic is able to provide an average of 235 free office visits per month to qualifying uninsured low income residents of Whitfield and Murray counties. 

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Advance tickets are recommended as seating is limited. Tickets are available in advance at The Dalton Freight Depot Gift Shop; Clark, Davies, Easley, and Poole Insurance; and Bigham Music.

For more information about the event email deoclinic@yahoo.com, visit DEO Medical Clinic on Facebook, or call 706-581-8025.

Sponsors for the event include First Presbyterian Church of Dalton; Dave & Pauli’s Art Emporium; Clark, Davies, Easley, and Poole Insurance; Modern Woodmen of America; Bigham Discount Music; Sassy Goat Milk Soap; Wyse Decisions; Laughter and Jones Financial Management; Jevin’s Ace Hardware; and the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
