A Packed House!

November 28, 2009

The Berkshire Art Kitchen was packed last Saturday night as guests crowded in to hear the driving, sultry sounds of Trice Atchison’s voice, Lukas Schwartz on fiddle and John Clarke and John Roberts on guitars.
A new-comer to BAK (and recent transplant from New York City) stated enthusiastically, “the evening far exceeded my expectations. We’ll definitely be back!” Other music aficionados were impressed with the selection of songs – a broad range of indy, jazz, folk and alternative rock.

“The event was a great success,” states BAK Executive Director and Founder, Gabrielle Senza. “The generosity of these artists to come together to create an evening like this in support of the Art Kitchen and the Walk Unafraid project is huge. I am very very grateful to each of them for putting in the effort, time and heart.”

The evening generated over $500 in funds. Half of the funds will be used to support BAK’s mission to present unique opportunities for creativity, connection and change; the other half will support the Walk Unafraid Worldwide campaign to empower survivors of abuse and educate communities around the globe to recognize and prevent physical, sexual and emotional abuse through innovative public art projects.

“Abuse effects everybody, whether we experience it first hand, or are intimate with someone who has. We all know someone who has experienced abuse ” Gabrielle continues. “That is why so many people like these musicians, are willing to come forward and help move the effort along. We need more people to step up and break the silence.”
