We are thrilled to announce that the 2019 Night For Sight concert event is happening on November 22nd at The Shedd! The featured musical act will be none other than The Good Time Travelers! And of course, no Night for Sight event would be complete without a cameo appearance of Dr. Haines jamming on the guitar with The Strange Desserts.
As always, this is a low-key fundraising event. By “low-key” we make it clear that you can donate to the cause, as well as bid on items that will be featured in our silent auction. In next month’s article, we will provide you with the URL link where you can secure your tickets for this wonderful event. We will also make this link available on our the Give Me Sight Foundation’s Facebook page should you wish to order tickers there.
Now, who are The Good Time Travelers? Well, they are a long-time favorite of the Give Me Sight Foundation and have played at a few of our signature events. On the band’s website, they describe their sound as the following:
The Good Time Travelers are a multi-instrumental acoustic duo with vocal harmonies and a stage presence so big that they have been described as a “2-piece power-trio”. Pete Kartsounes and Michael Kirkpatrick have a sound that is rooted in bluegrass and folk music, but the sentiment is pure rock and roll. They’ve performed around the country at festivals such as Big Sky Big Grass (MT), Northwest String Summit (OR), Folk Alliance (MO), Winter Wondergrass (CA/CO), River City Roots Festival (MT), Beartrap Festival (WY), Mystic Hot Springs Music Festival (UT), and Salmonfest (AK). The Good Time Travelers have opened for Bluegrass greats such as Sam Bush, Leftover Salmon, and Del McCoury & David Grisman.
If you would like to watch and listen to one of The Good Time Travelers’ songs, we have you covered with the below video to the track Through It All.
