Chris Tapp Benefit: This Thursday Night

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

The Nashville benefit for musician Chris Tapp, the guitarist and singer for the Cold Stares, is this Thursday night.

We have a great lineup of artists, including Matthew Perryman Jones, Thad Cockrell, Erin McCarley, Jeremy Lister , Emily West, Mark Huff, Betsy Ulmer, Jason Eskridge, Jill Andrews, and Maile Misajon. There may also be a couple surprises.

If you live in or around Nashville, the show will be at 3rd & Lindsley, this Thursday night at 8pm.

As I mentioned, Tapp is very talented blues/rock/roots musician who was recently diagnosed with melanoma. He’s currently undergoing an intense, year-long treatment of radiation and chemotherapy. We’re hoping to help him, his wife, and their two kids out with their finances and medical bills so he can focus on getting treated, getting better, and getting back to making great music.

If you’d like to donate to help out, send a check to:
