Aubrey Holt benefit show August 9

Aubrey Holt benefit August 9, 2015As we knew would surely happen, friends and family of Aubrey Holt, of the legendary Boys From Indiana, have scheduled a benefit concert to assist the medical fund set up his needs.

It will be held starting at 1:00 p.m. on August 9 at Turfway Park in Florence, KY. Set to perform are Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, The Grascals, Feller & Hill, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, and The Wildwood Valley Boys, with whom Aubrey had been touring until his kidney problems made that impossible.

Tickets are offered at $25 in advance, and for $30 at the door. They can be purchased from WOBO FM by calling 859-992-5575 or 513-724-3999.

Food and drink will be available on site, along with raffles and giveaways. The show is expected to run until 8:30 p.m.

The medical fund is set up as a GiveForward page, where pledges/donations can be processed using a credit card. It was established to help Aubrey cover his medical deductibles and uncovered expenses.

As of earlier today (6/29), only $690 of the hoped-for $10,000 had been committed. If you recall the beautiful bluegrass music Aubrey has made through his life, please consider a small donation.
