A Watershed Event: Where's Aubrey performs benefit for Clean Water in Clarke County

BERRYVILLE—Barns of Rose Hill,
Saturday, January 3, 2015-
Benefit performance by Where’s Aubrey, with a guest appearance from the The Bitter Liberals!

In a true community effort, the C Spout Run partners have been working since 2012 to help remove Clarke County’s Spout Run from Virginia’s impaired waters list and restore brook trout habitat. Come and learn more about this ongoing project and what you can do from representatives of Trout Unlimited, The Piedmont Environmental Council, Powhatan School, Lord Fairfax Soil and Water Conservation District, Friends of the Shenandoah River, Clarke County, and The Downstream Project. Learn about BMPs (best management practices), financial incentives and cost-share programs for everything from livestock fencing to septic repairs and maintenance—existing programs available to Spout Run residents that will go a long way to help protect our water. Learn about rain gardens and rain barrels and volunteer opportunities for water monitoring and tree plantings.

Many thanks to the duo behind Where’s Aubrey, Gary McGraw and Rhine Singleton, for donating their time and talent and proceeds for this concert to raise money and awareness for the C Spout Run project. All of their live concerts have been benefits for nonprofit endeavors; they are proud to give back to the community and are grateful to their generous fans. Where’s Aubrey has played together since 1985, writing and performing all original music since the turn of the millennium. Rhine Singleton’s original songs, cloaked and hooded by Gary McGraw’s improvisation on the fiddle and mandolin, range from old-timey folk music through modern jazz. Special Guests: The Bitter Liberals (Allen Kitselman, Clark Hansbarger, and Mike Jewell) will join Where’s Aubrey for a few songs.
