The fine folks at the Belleayre Music Festival in Highmount sent us this announcement, and we’d like to pass it along:
“Although today dawned bright and clear, the devastation of Hurricane Irene is apparent throughout the Catskill Region, specifically in Margaretville, Fleischmanns, Phoenicia and Arkville.
The Belleayre Music Festival has decided to donate the proceeds from our season-closing concert, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, to help the area’s flood victims. Please come and help us help the area recover from this natural disaster. The concert will be held as scheduled at 8pm on Saturday, September 3.
To purchase tickets, call 845-254-5600 ext. 1344 or go to our website.”
