It’s now been a couple of months since the horrendous happenings that basically tore apart Joplin, MO occurred. The video footage of the tornadoes ripping through the small town still makes most of us wince and should still make us all feel a little helpless inside.
Even as far south as Plano, TX, though, people refuse to forget and refuse to let the helplessness feelings take over. A great group of artists will be taking the stage in an effort to raise money for The Joplin Recovery Fund.
On Sunday, July 31, a fine and talented group of Singer/Songwriters, primarily based in north Texas will take one of our favorite stages anywhere, Love & War in Texas (Plano), and play their hearts out to get some money and supplies to those who so desperately need it right now.
Zane Williams, Saille Branch, Guthrie Kennard, Andrew Delaney and Michael Prysock are among many performers that will be hosted by Brett Dillon of KHYI 95.3 The Range on the 30th from 12pm to 6pm.
We found out about this event when we came upon this touching video tribute to the town of Joplin by Michael Prysock, a talented, Dallas-based songwriter who grew up in Arkansas, not too far from the region he’s trying to help now. Here’s that video for Prysock’s “Joplin.”
