We’ve had a lot of fun presenting our three Fossils benefit concerts in 2015, 2016 and 2017 for Lutheran Community Care’s social welfare programs. And it’s very satisfying that the September 2017 concert raised another $7,500, bringing the total for the three concerts to $20,000.
We’re very grateful for all the support we’ve received from fans of 60s and 70s folk music, as we’ve brought back to life those powerful lyrics, memorable melodies and and superb harmonies from the likes of Peter, Paul and Mary and Bob Dylan.
For the 2017 Concert, LCCare prepared a flyer that gives an insight into what has motivated our Fossils team to create our tribute band. You can download the flyer by clicking here.
