INDIAN?LAKE?- Acoustic musicians from the Adirondacks and beyond gathered to stage a benefit concert at the Indian Lake Theater on Nov. 13.
The concert raised $4,300 from ticket sales and donations. All of the proceeds have gone directly to help people affected by the Tropical Storm Irene floods in Jay, Keen and elsewhere in the Adirondacks.
"We had a terrific day of music and community," said Tom Akstens, one of the benefit organizers. "We're very grateful to everyone who came to the show, to all the folks who volunteered, to the Indian Lake Theater, to North Country Public Radio, to the Adirondack Community Trust, and to our wonderful performers."
