Steve Earle and City Winery have announced the fifth-annual John Henry’s Friends benefit concert, set for Tuesday, December 17th at New York City’s Town Hall. Steve Earle & The Dukes will act as musical hosts of the evening. Earle and company will also be joined by special guests Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, The Mastersons, and Josh Ritter.
The 2018 John Henry’s Friends benefit featured a solo set by guitarist Warren Haynes along with a rare duo set by husband-and-wife, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.
The annual benefit concert, John Henry’s Friends, raises money for the autism community. The event notes,
All net ticket proceeds will be donated to The Keswell School, an educational program for children and young adults with autism. Founded on the belief that children diagnosed with ASD can live full and productive lives as integrated members of their communities, The Keswell School provides educational, therapeutic and supportive services for children diagnosed with ASD and their families. This is a topic dear to Steve (Earle), as his son, John Henry, attends the school.
Nugs.net has also announced that it will be live streaming the event as a pay-per-view event for $19.99 via nugs.tv, starting at 8 p.m. ET. As with the concert itself, proceeds from the PPV will be donated to The Keswell School. The webcast is available for per-order here.
VIP packages and general admission tickets are now on sale here.
