Local musicians will play at Cork Cellars on Thursday evening, December 21, in a benefit fundraiser for the Sisters Cold Weather Shelter (SCWS).
The benefit is organized by Ed Fitzjarrel, who will play with his duo partner Joe Leonardi. Fitzjarrel's company, Metabolic Maintenance Products, will match the funds donated by patrons at the show.
Also performing are Doug & Katie Cavanaugh, and Mike Biggers & Jim Cornelius.
