Pilot Mountain Woman’s Club member Susie Firth-Cooper will be taking a hands-on approach to Saturday evening’s “Music from the Heart” fundraiser, as she and friend Randy Candelaria will be among the featured performers taking the stage beginning at 7 p.m. in the First United Methodist Church Family Life Center.
The busy duo, performing under the name CandleFirth, will play a variety of traditional and Celtic music using traditional instruments. They have just finished a full December and already have 24 dates booked in the current year.
Also taking the stage will be local favorites Wendy and Johnny Dearmin. The talented couple has developed a loyal following in recent years, playing an acoustic mix of folk and bluegrass while performing both together and with other groups.
An assortment of refreshments will be provided.
“We wanted to offer an event in February,” noted Firth-Cooper, who serves as the woman’s club chaplain. “This should be a nice evening with Valentine’s Day just around the corner and we’re hoping the community will come out to enjoy the music and support the woman’s club.”
“We’re doing this as a fundraiser for the Pilot Mountain Woman’s Club,” she explained, “with the funds raised to be used to meet the needs of the community. Community service is such an important part of what we provide.”
Admission for the evening is $10. Advance tickets are available at Blue Mountain Herbs and Supplements, the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library or from any club member. Tickets will also be available on the night of the performance at the door.
Snow date for the performance is Feb. 25.
“We’re looking forward to a great evening of celebration, of joy and music” Firth-Cooper said. “We invite everyone to come out and enjoy the music while benefiting the Pilot Mountain Woman’s Club.”
