The 5th Annual Songs for Shelter concert will be held Thursday, December 16 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Egan’s Ballard Jam House, 1707 NW Market Street in Ballard. Performers include internationally-known local artists Paul Benoit, Jim Page, Rachel Harrington, Eric Apoe, Larry Murante and other local favorites.
Suggested $10 donation will support programs serving homeless families at Solid Ground.
The concert series began as a CD release party for the Songs for Shelter CD in 2005 (available on CD Baby). Paul Benoit, one of the musicians on that project, took on organizing annual encore events. This is the second time Songs for Shelter has been held at Egan’s. Over the life of the project more than $20,000 has been raised to help homeless families regain stability.
“We’ve had a blast doing these shows every year. The musicians feel honored to be contributing to such an important cause,” said Benoit.
The performers currently scheduled for the 12/16 show are:
