Operation Freeflow Benefit Concert - To Assist In the West Virginia Chemical Spill Cleanup & Recovery

ft. Morgan O’Kane, Jon Stickley Trio, Dane Alderson Trio, Phillip Roebuck & After Jack

Local nonprofit Catalyst Productions announces a benefit concert, to be held on Saturday night, at Charlottesville’s revered Jefferson Theater. The concert will benefit communities in the South Charleston area of West Virginia effected by the chemical spill. The spill left 300,000 people without safe, clean water. Catalyst Productions is seeking to raise money to continue relief efforts, in addition to raising awareness that the contamination problems have not yet been alleviated.

The concert will feature local favorites Dane Alderson Trio, performing at 7:30pm, followed by a set break performance by festival touring band After Jack at 8:30. At 9:00 Jon Stickley Trio will bring its custom sound to the stage at the Jefferson, welcoming audiences into their signature newgrass vibe. At 10:15 After Jack will again take the stage, keeping audiences warm for the arrival of Morgan O’Kane and his Current Band at 10:45. O’Kane returns to Charlottesville from New York, bringing his banjo-driven sound to round out the night. Doors open at 6:30.

Catalyst welcomes the partnership of Appalachian Voices in promoting this event. Appalachian Voices, with an office in Charlottesville, is a regional conservation nonprofit organization committed to protecting the Central and South Appalachian region, and is excited to join the Charlottesville community in responding in disaster relief for the South Charleston area. Proceeds from this event will go to provide bottled water, hygienic cleaning products, and non-perishable foods for communities in West Virginia that are still struggling to find water day by day.
