Give US Your Poor Concert - Celebrity and Homeless Artists

In November 2007, a number of artists that appear on the Give US Your Poor CD joined together for a concert to benefit Give US Your Poor and 10 homeless service organizations. Headlining the show were Natalie Merchant, Buffalo Tom, Mario Frangoulis, and Mighty Sam McClain. Other artists that appeared included Julia Tripp, Cheryl Middleton, Michael Sullivan, Chris Holzer, Montreville Blakely, Julia Dinsmore, and Nichole Cooper. The show was put on in partnership with the Mayor of Boston, Thomas Menino, and sponsored by Ipswitch Co., Fannie Mae Foundation, and a number of co-sponsors. The show was proceeded by a photo exhibit of homeless portraits by photographer, Lynn Blodgett.
