One of Lawrence’s favorite singer-songwriters and a good friend of Mass St Music, Kelley Hunt, will be again rocking Liberty Hall this New Year’s Eve, and thankfully like last year, show proceeds will benefit the very deserving ECKAN/Just Food -the major food pantry in east central Kansas, which needs help now more than ever. Just Food has reported a 20% increase over last year in the number of families and individuals requiring its assistance. Last year Kelley’s show provided over $4,000 and many food donations to help cover what traditionally is a break in the flow of money and food donations just after the holidays.
This show will also be the official Kansas City/Lawrence CD release event for Kelley’s latest work “Gravity Loves You” – CLICK BELOW TO READ DETAILS
which isn’t released nationally until Jan. 18. It features new songs from Kelley, co-writes with frequent collaborator and Kansas Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg and Nashville writers Dwight Liles and Sara Hart. This will be a chance for local fans to get their copy early. Attendees who bring food or monetary contributions for Just Food will receive a $5 off coupon redeemable at the show for a copy of “Gravity Loves You” or any of Kelley’s other releases. Tickets for this great benefit concert are now on sale at all ticketmaster.com locations and at the Liberty Hall box office at 644 Mass. St. (785-749-1972). Ticket prices vary from $20-$30 and all seats are reserved. Rock it local folks!
