Butch Baldassari benefit show 10/22

Butch BaldassariMandolin Cafe has posted details for a special all-star show in Nashville on October 22, all for the benefit of Butch Baldassari. The show will be held on the Vanderbilt University campus at 7:00 p.m.

Butch has been battling a brain tumor with intense and aggressive treatments, and the proceeds from this concert will go help defray his many medical expenses – and other financial obligations he faces.

Performers who are slated to appear include Butch’s Nashville Mandolin Ensemble, The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Bela Fleck, Dierks Bentley, 3 Ring Circle, John Cowan and several others.

Most of our readers know that Butch is a veteran bluegrass and mandolin music artist, writer and arranger who also founded and manages his own label, Sound Art Recordings. He is a long time friend to our music, and one who has contributed greatly to its excellence and continued expansion.

For those unable to attend the 10/22 show, donations to his medical fund can be made through Mandolin Cafe, where they have set up a support fund for Butch.

Donations by check and cards/well wishes can be sent by mail to:

Butch Baldassari
125 43rd Ave. N.
Nashville, TN 37209
