Tim Baucom & Andrew Morehouse of Walcrik & Mick Reed in Two Benefit Concerts in support of Parks Place Community Resource Center.
The community is invited to two musical events coming in October, the first to take place on Saturday night October 3rd and the second on Friday night October 9th. The Walpole Artisan Cooperative is hosting the performances, both of which will be held at the Howell Studio, 250 Old Keene Rd, Walpole, NH.
These two events are a “thank you” gift to everyone who patronizes the Walpole Artisan gallery and equally as important, they are a gift of social wellbeing to a community center that focuses its resources on human services. Parks Place directly benefits the residents of northeastern Windham County and adjoining areas, an area where many families live below the poverty level. The Walpole Artisans feel very strongly that supporting Parks Place is an important way of giving back to the community.
In addition to great music, there will be finger food and beverages provided by the members of the gallery who will also donate original fine art and crafts to both an art raffle and silent auction. Donations will be accepted to help cover costs, and proceeds from the raffle and silent auction will go to Parks Place in Bellows Falls to support their services.
Parks Place Community Resource Center is a “HUB” that provides community members a safe and accessible location to make lasting, positive changes in their lives. People struggling to overcome hardships need multiple support systems because problems such as substance abuse or unemployment are rarely one-dimensional or simple to solve.

With folk, bluegrass, traditional and rock influences, the two have built a repertoire of harmony-centric songs that are inspired by both their rural Northeastern roots and their time wandering the West.
