The most talked-about event of the past two years is back and you’re invited! On May 19, 2012, the Porter Center at Brevard College will host the third annual Songsmith Gathering. The Gathering is an amazing night of song and a fundraiser benefitting SAFE, an agency providing services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. During the past fiscal year, SAFE has provided nearly 5,800 services to approximately 450 clients, including shelter for 102 women and children in crisis!
This year, doors to the Songsmith Gathering will open at 6 pm with a Happy Hour and a TLC Raffle featuring items following the theme of Travel, Love, and the Comforts of Home. Later at 7:30, attendees will enjoy an intimate evening with four prestigious singer-songwriters. This year’s artists are new to the event. Twice Grammy-nominated songwriter Sarah Siskind has written songs for both Randy Travis and Allison Krause. Asheville native Moses Atwood brings a soulful and gutsy sound to the scene, while Chris Rosser brings his world music-inspired stylings to the stage. And, last, Jill Andrews, whose song was just featured on popular television show, “American Idol” joins the crew for what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
