Music Matters Concert Series
Beg, Steal or Borrow | Donation Based Concert on Lake Morey Waterfront
The Music Matters Concert Series is a fundraiser for the music curriculum at Waits River Valley School, a PreK-8 school serving roughly 275 children from Corinth and Topsham, Vt.
- Admission to all shows is by donation.
- Concert on the Lakefront
- Food and drinks available for purchase.
- All proceeds from the Music Matters Concert Series will contribute to the acquisition of quality instruments and equipment for Waits River Valley School’s new Live Band curriculum.
- Beg, Steal or Borrow has appeared at festivals and venues throughout the northeastern United States and features an ever-growing repertoire of original music and classic covers. Known for their vocal harmony and high-energy instrumental arrangements, Beg, Steal or Borrow has won bluegrass festival band competitions at Podunk, Grey Fox, and Thomas Point Beach, hence being dubbed a “Triple Crown Bluegrass Band” by Bluegrass Today. Based in Vermont, the quintet released its celebrated debut album of original music, Old Mountain Time, in 2019.
- Here is the wish list: 2 electric guitars 1 electric bass guitar 1 weighted keyboard 1 drum kit 3 vocal microphones 3 guitar amps, cables, stands, and cases 3 microphone cables and stands 1 PA system (mixer, speakers and stands) Students at Waits River Valley School LOVE music.
- The school currently possesses a good collection of introductory instruments for young students such as rhythm sticks, egg shakers and ukuleles, but it lacks sufficient funds for quality Live Band equipment.
- Music Matters is a grassroots movement to make music education accessible to everyone, especially young people. While this fundraiser focuses on aiding one school’s music program, the long-term goal of the Music Matters Movement is to help get instruments to any school that needs them and to provide mobile music classrooms to schools that either have no music program or lack access to quality musical equipment.
- Sponsored by Farm-Way, Copeland Furniture, JM Landscaping, 1791 Star Hemp, East Coast Van Builds and Valley Floors, the Music Matters Concert Series features an eclectic lineup of premiere touring performers, bringing world class musicianship and entertainment to intimate venues in the Upper Valley.
