Which seems, unfortunately, all too appropriate since Schenectady County has the highest rate of domestic violence calls in New York State.
Headlining the concert will be Bethany & Rufus, a dynamic duo featuring vocalist Bethany Yarrow (the daughter of Peter, Paul & Mary’s Peter Yarrow) and her musical compatriot-cellist Rufus Cappadocia. Also performing on the bill will be New England singer-songwriter Lui Collins and Nippertown’s own eclectic roots-music masters Annie & the Hedonists.
The “Imagine” concert takes place at the Eighth Step at Proctors’ GE Theatre in Schenectady at 7:30pm on Friday (October 15). Tix are are $25 and $35, with proceeds going to the Schenectady YWCA and other regional organizations working to change public tolerance of domestic abuse in its various forms: child abuse, elder abuse, spousal abuse and others.
