Bitter Liberal Spotted Raising Money in NH

Fiddle player Gary McGraw, sometimes referred to as the hillbilly Mozart was recently spotted in San Francisco, Boston, Dublin NH, and Nuremberg. While in New Hampshire over his 52nd birthday, McGraw played a Where’s Aubrey fundraiser.

Copied from apothecaryshed.com, this entry describes the show and its fundraising results.

What’s the best way to celebrate birthday 52? With a show in New Hampshire of course. Where’s Aubrey played a show in the middle of nowhere in New Hampshire for a receptive audience at the Mole Hill Theater. As always, we played a benefit performance, this time for the LEAF (nutritious lunch) program of a public charter school operating out of the same revamped machine shop where we played the show.

A machine

We played our sets right next to a huge blue machine. Not sure what it actually used to do. Stamp out complete cars??

The show was high energy and fun, one of the best we’ve played.

What kind of stuff does it take to play an acoustic act??

the stage

Well, to be fair, we played our two set show. Then after a break we electrified the whole thing with drums, bass, and electric guitar. The LEAF Cutters were born. Dancing happened. Much fun was had.

A message from Rhine

Dear Friends and Music Lovers –

Because you and so many others turned out last Saturday night, we not only had a total blast playing music, we raised $1250 for the healthy lunches program at the LEAF school through donations at the door. The silent auction brought in another $1000, so the event truly was a smashing success!

And, you were a wonderful audience to play for. So, we’re sending our heartfelt thanks. Hope to see you at another music event before too long!
