The Unbroken Circle to Perform Benefit Concert for the Shalom Project

Triad Arts as Broadcast at 8:35am and 5:44pm

The Unbroken Circle is Wake Forest University’s multi-generational string band. It’s a community of musicians who gather together regularly to share in the fellowship of music-making, song-sharing, story-telling, and poetry reading. They also come together for worthy causes, and on Saturday night, February 1st at 7:00 pm they’ll offer a free concert at Kulynych Auditorium in the Byrum Welcome Center on the Wake campus Winston-Salem. Donations will be collected there for The Shalom Project, a Winston-Salem charity that feeds the hungry, provides clothing to those in need, and tutors at risk children. They also care for the sick running one of the largest free medical clinics in the city.  The fundraiser will be an intimate evening of live, acoustic Old Time music and blue grass with poetry readings by Ed Wilson. WFU Dean of Admissions Martha Allman is a member of The Unbroken Circle. She’s a native of Mitchell County, North Carolina in the Appalachian Mountains.

We've been sampling from last year’s performance live at Green Street Church in W-S.
