Mac McCaughan, Phil Cook, Lonnie Walker & more playing arts benefit in Raleigh

Not only is there a benefit show in Durham this weekend, there is also a two-night benefit in Raleigh for the new community education facility dubbed Moving Island. The organization is led by four board members, Chris Riddle (Motor Skills/Old Bricks), Adam Crane, Kelly Crisp (The Rosebuds) and Maria Albani (Schooner/Organos).

The benefit concert, cleverly called Buoyancy Benefit since it's to get the organization afloat, will be at Moving Island, which is located at 804 N. West St. in Raleigh. It will happen on Friday, January 28 starting at 7 p.m. & Saturday, January 29 starting at 3 p.m.

There will be sets by two newly announced special guests, Mac McCaughan and Phil Cook and His Feat as well as the original lineup including Lonnie Walker, Veelee, Gray Young, Organos, Schooner, Old Bricks and more. Check out the full schedule below for set times.
