On Tuesday May 17, please join us at The Tower Theatre for an evening with Beth Wood and the Stronghold Trio.
This concert is a fundraiser sponsored by our own SoldierSongs group to support transitional housing for wounded veterans in the wake of recent Federal budget cuts. These cuts leave many of Oregon vets without the resources they need to reintegrate into their communities upon homecoming. Soldier Songs hope to raise both awareness and funds in support of the cause. Your ticket helps us meet this goal!
Beth Wood is a modern-day troubadour and believer in the power of song. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, powerhouse voice, and commanding stage presence have been winning over American audiences for eighteen years. Beth’s music is soulful, organic, intelligent, barefoot, high-energy communication of joy.
