For the second year, Cincinnati musician Rosie Carson, who has been touring internationally of late, will come home to host and perform at a fundraiser dedicated to her mother, Sue Carson. Sue lost her battle with cancer, so proceeds from the event, which also features The Graveblankets and Tickled Pink, will benefit Cincinnati’s Cancer Family Care, which provides education and counseling to cancer patients and their families. The concert happens Tuesday, April 16 at the 20th Century Theater. Rosie joins Frank Johnson to talk about this event, her recent travels, and the new CD she and partner Kevin Dempsey will have out in October.
CityLink, Cincinnati’s one-stop location for a myriad of social and governmental services to assist residents in need, is one of the beneficiaries of this year’s The Rat Race, a 5k and 10k run and walk in around the Loveland Bike Trail. Barbara Gray welcomes in Megan Busch and Dani Watkins from CityLink to not only talk about the run, but about the work of CityLink and how the integration of services is helping some our poorest neighbors.
Next Sunday is the Fifth Annual Music Among Friends classical music concert, benefiting the Literacy Council of Clermont and Brown Counties. Brian O’Donnell speaks with organizer, performer, literacy tutor and host of Sunday Baroque on 90.9 WGUC, Suzanne Bona, about the event and this year’s performers.
