Come out tonite to support a Maine musician in need and a Maine band still grieving. Tonite at AURA it's the benefit for Tim Butterworth with Rustic Overtones and Anna Lombard.
Here's some background on Tim Butterworth from AURA:
Cape Elizabeth musician done well, Tim Butterworth has been making a name for himself in the music world out of California. While on the way to a performance in August 2018, Butterworth had an epileptic seizure. The seizure resulted in major trauma to the head due to a bad fall. After initial procedures, Tim spent three weeks in the ICU on life support. The hospital bills, medical needs and loss of work is mounting higher than comprehension.
Cue the always supportive local music scene and the good friend that are supporting Tim in his time of need. Join Maine legends Rustic Overtones – for their first performance ever at Aura – along with show organizer and supremely talented singer, Anna Lombard, for a special night of music for a close friend and fellow Mainer.
All proceeds go to support Tim after his terrible accident.
This will be the first live show for Rustic Overtones since the passing of beloved member Dave Noyes, who passed away unexpectantly last week. The band addressed this on their Facebook page:
After Dave Noyes’s passing this week, it was impossible to think of taking the stage without him and there were some talks of canceling. But it’s a benefit for someone that needs our help, a fellow musician that needs our help. So the current Rustic line-up will be joined by Spencer Albee Tony McNaboe Ryan Zoidis Jamie Colpoys and Michael J. Taylor and many many more. Strength in numbers, let’s pack this
If there was ever a night to come out to support our Maine musicians, this would be it.
