Busking for Books: Musicians needed!

Postby jjoyce » Fri Jun 03, 2011 3:54 pm

State Street
Saturday, June 18th
10:30 am -12:30 pm

Local acoustic musicians will be busking in 27 locations throughout State Street to raise funds for Literacy Network, a non-profit grassroots organization that serves more than 1,300 adults each year, helping them learn to read, write and speak English. Busking for Books is about raising awareness and funds for those in need, while highlighting Madison's rich musical culture.

This is a great opportunity for musicians to contribute to improving lives of people in our community in a simple and meaningful way! Musicians will have the chance to sign up for locations on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A volunteer will be assigned to each musician - the volunteer will be responsible for sharing information about Busking for Books and Literacy Network (www.litnetwork.org).

If you are interested in BUSKING please email busk@litnetwork.org

If you are interested in VOLUNTEERING please contact Shawn at shawn@litnetwork.org or 244-3911.

This is going to be great fun! I hope you are able to join us, or at least spread the word!

I'm in.

I'll be the old man trying to busk with a new flute...

I'm not up for busking, but I'm willing to help the cause by dusting off an old idea that never came to fruition:

A couple of dunk tanks - Jason Joyce in one, and me in the other. Twenty-five bucks a throw.
