Singer-songwriter and longtime friend of Seed Savers Exchange Greg Brown will return to Heritage Farm for a benefit concert under the stars on July 14, 2012! Joining Greg will be special guest Bo Ramsey. This acoustic performance marks Brown’s ninth stage appearance at Seed Savers Exchange (SSE), a favorite venue of the Iowa superstar. This benefit concert will support SSE’s mission to maintain and distribute heirloom varieties.
“It was always hard to do other shows after Seed Savers,” Greg is quoted as saying in SSE co-founder Diane Ott Whealy’s memoir, Gathering, “None of them were in the middle of a big garden full of nourishment and sunflowers, and the sun going down over those mysterious old hills.”
Pre-order your tickets online or by calling 563-382-5990 ($25). Tickets and Will Call will be available the day of the event for $30 at the Lillian Goldman Visitors Center until 4 p.m. After 4 p.m., tickets and Will Call will be at the gate located near the SSE offices, 3094 North Winn Road (second driveway on the right north of the visitors center entrance). Tickets purchased after Friday, July 6, will be available at Will Call.
See you at the show!
