Jus' Plain Folk to do benefit for Friends of Forgotten Children

Bill Dearborn, Executive Director of Friends of Forgotten Children, is pleased to announce that Jus’ Plain Folk will appear in a St. Patrick’s weekend concert to benefit Friends.

Friends of Forgotten Children is an independent, non-profit social service agency serving the Greater Concord area and beyond. “Friends” provides food, clothing and other services to low income individuals and families, including those who have lost their jobs, have disabilities and/or are homeless.

“The mission of Friends of Forgotten Children is to help those in need,” stated Bill Dearborn, but to provide a high quality of service to our clients requires a certain level of income. As an independent provider, we depend solely upon the donations of others for our success. To have Jus’ Plain Folk provide this fundraiser for us is a wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy an evening of great entertainment and support Friends of Forgotten Children at the same time.”

Jus’ Plain Folk is a duo, Jan Carron and Jim Barnes, accompanying themselves on guitars (6 and 12 string) and banjo. The flavor of their music is Irish. Add a pinch of humor and a dash of sing-a-long and the result is a rich banquet of traditional Irish folk music.

Bill continued, “We are especially thrilled to have Jus’ Plain Folk on this particular date (Saturday, March 15). Given the music they do the St. Patrick’s Day weekend is prime time for them. For them to donate themselves on that particular Saturday night is huge.”

The Jus’ Plain Folk Irish music concert will be held at the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge function room, 170 North State Street, Concord. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12.50. Reservations can be made by contacting the Friends of Forgotten Children at 603-753-4801. Tickets will also be available at the door, but seating is limited, so advance purchase is recommended. A cash bar will be available for the enjoyment of concert-goers. Complimentary snacks will also be available throughout the evening

All proceeds will benefit the ongoing work of Friends of Forgotten Children. Additional support of Jus’ Plain Folk is provided by Eastern Propane & Oil, Loudon, NH.
