It may be cold outside on Sunday, but RI’s award-winning Roomful of Blues will be turning up the heat for the Charlestown Land Trust at a special Get-rid-of-the-winter blues Benefit Concert.”

The five-time Grammy nominee band will be playing at a special event for the nonprofit land trust this Sunday, January 15 at  4 p.m. The venue is the newly remodeled Starlight Ballroom of The Knickberbocker Cafe in Westerly, at 35 Railroad Avenue (down the street from the Westerly train station).  The house-rockin’ band has received numerous awards – most recently the Boston Music Award for best blues artist.

Tickets are $25, available online at The Knickerbocker Cafe’s website or at the door on Sunday. Food and beverages will be available.

The  special concert is the first event in the Charlestown Land Trust’s campaign to buy and preserve 27+ scenic aces on the shores of Watchaug Pond in Charlestown and to turn the site into a nature sanctuary with walking trails for the public.

If you can’t make the concert, but want to show your support or learn more about the campaign,  visit the Charlestown Land Trust website.
