Come join us for a concert. On Saturday, January 25th, the Vanilla Bean Cafe, located in Pomfret, will be hosting the twenty-third Annual Emergency Northeast Connecticut Food Bank Benefit. This local tradition is an evening of singing, laughter, hot licks on guitar, fiddle and banjo, wonderful desserts, and beverages ranging from fresh squeezed cappuccino to fine wines. The Vanilla Bean is a great place to shake off the winter blahs, and we have music that will lift your spirits. The show begins at 8 p.m. and admission is $20.
Howie Bursen, “the Red Hot Banjo Wizard”, who has hosted this event for 23 years will also be joined by John Bailey and Jeff Davis. Bailey, “Guitarrista Extraordinaire”, plays many different guitar styles and was the lead guitarist for Chris Smither. Jeff Davis, “Man of Mystery” is also featured to entertain the audience.
