“Band Together” Concert to Benefit the Mental Health Association in Talbot County
Easton, MD, July 13, 2015 - The Mental Health Association in Talbot County (MHATC), a non-profit organization that promotes mental wellness and behavioral health with education and advocacy, invites the public to its “Band Together” music event at the historic Avalon Theatre in Easton, Maryland on Sunday, August 16th at 7 p.m.
“Band Together” features several artists that are locally and nationally known:
Eric Karge: Eric Karge, winner of the Maryland Music Awards Country Artist of the Year for 2014, hails from Preston, Maryland. Karge’s small town roots and Eastern Shore upbringing is the embodiment of what country music artists strive to create as their "image.” The difference with Eric, however, is that he doesn't have to create anything. He is the real deal.
Brent Schraffenberger: Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Brent’s music blends folk, country and Americana with influences from all genres. His songs are a fusion of story-telling and explorations of his own life-experience and how we interact with the world around us.
Terrick Lee: Terrick Lee hails from Chestertown Maryland. From his local high school days and all the way to Nashville, Terrick has played many of the honky tonks, clubs, bars and even the world famous Grand Ole Opry. Terrick has worked with some of the best publishers, songwriters and producers that Nashville has to offer, and is now the lead singer in the country/rock group “21 Horses.”
J. Coursey Willis: Fusing elements of rock, blues and grunge with an acoustic foundation, J. Coursey Willis captures the listener and takes them on a dark, gritty journey with his soulful vocals. He released his debut EP, “Missing October,” on May 31, 2015 and is preparing for his next studio release.
Chesapeake Sons (formerly The Cheaters): Brett Wilmer, from Anne Arundel County, and Jason Morton, hails from Queen Anne’s County, bridge the Bay to make up Chesapeake Sons. While the duo has certainly held their own opening for renowned bands such as ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock and many others, they have made the trek to Nashville for their debut as the lead act. While their single “She Got a Way” gets national attention, they return to their hometown Maryland roots with their infectious tunes and high-energy harmonies for local appearances. For full article..
