Local musicians John Goodin and Erik Sessions will present a fundraising concert benefiting the North Winn Community EPA Lawsuit Saturday, April 27, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the door. All tickets are $10.
As a recognized local duo, Erik and John enjoy playing a mixture of fiddle music (American old time, Scandinavian-American old time, Irish, Scottish, English, and original tunes), folk-related classical music, jazz, and standard tunes.
This fundraising concert is on behalf of the North Winn Community Lawsuit, a movement based in response to the large number of livestock confinements in close proximity to the North Winneshiek School. The lawsuit seeks a federal court order directing the federal EPA to implement the applicable provisions of the Clean Air Act (designed to regulate the discharge of toxic gases and substances into the atmosphere) in order to protect the health of students, faculty, and employees of the North Winneshiek Community School District.
The original lawsuit, filed in Cedar Rapids, will be re-filed the week of this concert.
Further information regarding the lawsuit as well as an opportunity for conversation with leaders of the initiative will be available.
Contact Contact Bob Watson at 563-379-2147 with any questions/inquiries concerning both the lawsuit and the concert.
