Whitemarsh Connect is hosting an evening with national and Grammy honored recording artist John Flynn, one of Philadelphia’s greatest singer songwriters, at the Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery in Lafayette Hill on Saturday, May 7th. The event is in support of Cathy Peduzzi and her team as they work towards the goal of raising $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by June 10, 2016. Peduzzi, a Whitemarsh resident, is participating in the society’s Man and Woman of the Year campaign.
Over four decades, John Flynn’s music has carried him from Jersey Shore bars to Nashville’s Music Row; from home plate performances in major league ballparks, to concerts in maximum-security prisons; from star-studded benefit shows at Tipitina’s in New Orleans, to bridge-building appearances at the Walter Reed Military Hospital and Dover Air Force Base.
In 2005, Arlo Guthrie invited John to join musical legends like Willie Nelson and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott on the historic “Train to New Orleans” tour following Hurricane Katrina. It was on that trip that Ramblin’ Jack dubbed Flynn “the John Lennon of the plasma generation”!
The evening will start with an Open Bar (draft beer) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wine and mixed drinks can be purchased. The show will start at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets are $40.00. All proceeds will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
