It’s a once in a lifetime event; several well-known sing-songwriters are coming to Bend to help out a high school music program. Summit High School's "Friends of Music" are hosting Tim Johnson, James Dean Hicks, Clay Mills, all from Nashville, and a local boy: Ross Rogers to perform in a "round" at Summit High June 30th.

"One fella on the end will start, and he'll just play is guitar and sing. And the others remain silent. And then it's the next guys' turn, he sings his song. It’s in the rough, but there's nothing more beautiful than to hear these songs in the rough, how they were written. of course, most folk hear them on the radio done by other artists. and so it's very interesting to hear the real McCoy." Ross Rogers says there is a real authentic sound when the writer performs his own songs, and this is a first for Central Oregon. Nashville in Bend is at Summit High school Thursday, June 30th at 7 p.m. Purchase tickets at various locations such as Newport Market, Robson Insurance (in Bend), Square Dot Saddlery in Prineville, and at the door.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
