A Reunion for Peace:
Scott Foster
Darren Johnston
Marcus Shelby

Reprising a trio that worked together 15 years ago, guitarist Scott Foster has invited bassist Marcus Shelby and trumpeter Darren Johnston to reunite for a concert offering songs of peace and and other compositions, including Ornette Coleman’s “The Blessing” and Joe Henderson’s “Serenity.”

Doors open at 7:20; show at 7:30. No reservations. The concert will also be streamed on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.

50% of the first $1,000 in contributions collected at the door will be donated to World Central Kitchen to support Ukraine’s war-besieged population, while 50% will go the support the musicians and sound engineer as a “guaranteed fair wage.”

100% of all additional door revenues will be donated to World Central Kitchen.

Contributions can be made by cash or by check to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (please notate “Reunion Trio” in the memo line).

If watching online, please donate via this link Donations made there will go through PayPal, but you don’t need a PayPal account — you can use a credit or debit card there if you like. Donations go to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project, and will be added to the contribution to be made to World Central Kitchen. Feel free to send us an email at [email protected] if you want to alert us to the purpose and amount of your donation.

Thank you.
