NORWICH — Nashville guitarist and Norwich native Brian Golden — joined by wife and gospel singer Aletha Golden — will bring local music lovers a little taste of Music City, Tennessee from 6 to 8 p.m. this Friday at the Norwich American Legion Post 189, located at 29 Sheldon Street; an evening of acoustic blues, soul, and Americana.
Tickets for the two-hour performance are $10 at the door with half of all proceeds benefiting the Ron Palmer Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Established in 2019 following the passing of local music legend Ron Palmer, the Ron Palmer Memorial Scholarship Fund has raised more than $16,000 since its inception. Proceeds from its annual concert, held each year in mid-July, support local music and arts programs, in addition to the fund’s scholarship program.
Past beneficiaries of the Ron Palmer Memorial Scholarship Fund include NHS graduate and percussionist Griffin Frank, the Oxford Music Boosters and the Norwich Holy Family School.
