Benefit Concert for Donny Barnes

This Sunday, June 10, Hannah Flanagan’s Pub (27 Biltmore Ave., Asheville) hosts an all-day benefit concert for Donny Barnes (wife of local guitarist Mike Barnes), who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

Proceeds from the show will offset the costs of surgery, chemotherapy and reconstruction as well as benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Fifteen musical acts are slated to perform from noon to midnight, including Kaizan (instrumental jazz fusion), Sons of Ralph (bluegrass), Westsound (soul), A Social Function (funk), and Big Road Blues. Festivities include a silent auction and a raffle with items from Warren Haynes, Silver Spirits Photography, Mangum Pottery, Reems Creek Golf Club, area jewelry makers, artists and restaurants.
