HOLIDAY ACOUSTIC NIGHT WILL BENEFIT THE DRUID CITY GARDEN PROJECT
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will present a Holiday Acoustic Night on Dec. 17, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Bama Theatre’s Greensboro Room, and all proceeds will be donated to the Druid City Garden Project.
Mark Hughes Cobb (singer-songwriter); Ed Miller & Don Penzien (Celtic Christmas Music); Amy McCarley (Americana singer-songwriter); and The Voodoo Saints (New Orleans Jazz)will be the featured musicians.
Suggested donation is $5, and a full service bar will be available. Acoustic Night features new and upcoming and also established musicians from around the country throughout the calendar year in the intimate setting of the Greensboro Room.
The mission of the Druid City Garden Project is to increase access to fresh, locally-grown produce and empower the community to make healthy and sustainable food choices. The organization uses school gardens, farm stands and educational programs to help diverse communities in Alabama build vibrant food systems. K-5 students experience a hands-on science- and math-based curriculum through participation in an outdoor teaching tool, the garden, every week during the school year. DCGP works with each school for 2-3 years, installing a garden, training educators and running professional development so that, ultimately, the school will take over the program on their own.

“The Druid City Garden Project is an important program that will impact future generations and the overall health of our community. We are pleased that Acoustic Night can contribute to their worthwhile mission,” said David Allgood, Bama Theatre Manager.
The Bama Theatre is located at 600 Greensboro Avenue in downtown Tuscaloosa.
