Jackson County Interfaith Shelter's
"Gimme Shelter" Concert Series
In May 2004 a monthly acoustic concert series was started at the Jackson Interfaith Shelter in Jackson, Michigan, to benefit the shelter and all the folks there. Music is provided free by performing artists in the area. Free gourmet coffee is provided by local coffeehouses including BIGGBY Coffee of Jackson.
With the success of the series, a fund raiser was held in December 2004 to purchase and install a permanent sound system at the Shelter for the concerts as well as church and personal growth services provided at the Shelter. The funds were raised and, through the generosity of local citizens, the system installed in February 2005. The Gimme Shelter Concert Series continues on and will, hopefully, continue as long as the Shelter's doors remain open and people are in need of its help. While the series was started and manned by local Jackson area artists, word got out and artists from all over Michigan have been joining in.
If there are any acoustic musicians who are interested in helping out with this event, please feel free to email Bea Furman at [email protected].
