Known for mesmerizing his audience, Grammy® winner Ed Gerhard performs on 6-string, 12-string, slide guitar or Hawaiian Lap Steel, with musical intensity and a sly sense of humor.

Berklee-trained Pete Huttlinger, has thrilled audiences around the world with his remarkable arrangements that include a tune’s melody, harmony, and bass lines - at the same time. He inevitably leaves his audience saying “WOW. How did he do that?” Gerhard and Huttlinger will be joined by pre-war Blues master 'Mississippi' Jon Short and Berkee-based band The Beastonians to support the MA-based charity Raising The Blues, Ltd. which brings interactive music, lessons & instruments into in-patient pediatric hospitals, medical-needs summer camps and special-needs schools around New England.
