Benefit Concert featuring Magpie and Tri State Ukeclectic Orchestra supporting Big Cove Creek Alliance

Hancock Town Hall
Sunday, August 21, 2016
6:30 PM — 9:00 PM
126 W High St
Hancock, MD 21750 United States


A concert for Big Cove Creek Alliance will take place Sunday August 21 at 6:30 at Hancock Town Hall, 126 W High St. Hancock MD.  This concert features Magpie, an award winning Washington area folk duo known for their “two strong voices in harmony and superb instrumental arrangements” playing traditional and vintage American music as well as contemporary and stirring original compositions since 1973.  They will be joined by Tri State Ukeclectic Orchestra, a multi-generational ukulele band established in 2015 known for it’s creative use of the Ukulele in music not usually associated with the tiny instrument.

This concert is to benefit  Big Cove Creek Alliance, a local environmental group working to protect the land, air and water quality of our beautiful Tri State area and promote healthy and sustainable farming practices.  The current issue is a proposed CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) or factory farm to be located just above Big Cove Creek in Fulton County PA.  This pristine creek feeds into Licking Creek, the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. “Because We All Live Downstream”

Admission to this event is free but any donations will help support the Big Cove Creek Alliance.
